Delicate Arch
Wind and Water Erosion The rock in this arch was once a part of an ancient fin. An alcove formed in the fin; erosional forces continued until this free-standing arch perched at the edge of a slick-rock bowl is all that remains. Differences in the rock's resistance to erosion make the arch appear to resemble a dragon sniffing a flower. Note the resistant cap rock that is still in place.
