Looking out from the ledge, we saw dozens of large, smooth sandstone formations, and even a few small arches. The ledge led around a tall cliff wall, and then reached an opening. As we turned this last bend, we gasped, because there before us sat Delicate Arch! We had made it! And it was so worth it.
