Sand Dune Arch

On my last morning in Arches National Park (Utah), I tried to find as many arches as I could, that I hadn’t seen or photographed during my night shoots there. One of those was Sand Dune Arch. Following a 1/4-mile trail, I ended up walking in heavy sand … kinda reminded me of walking the beaches of Hallo Bay, Alaska while doing bear photography. As the trail narrowed, the sand grew deeper:

Within a short distance, I came upon Sand Dune Arch:

This arch is a much smaller arch than most I photographed during the week I was there. But still a nice structure.
