Sitting in the shade of the arch.  Lots of people sit in the shade of arches. - There sure aren't many trees! Looking straight up at the arch. The rail line to a nearby potash mine.  One train a week runs to the mine.
I could have climbed to the top of the arch using this line of hand-holes. - I decided not to because it might have irritated my bad toe joint. - I did not want to be hobbling around Moab for the next week instead of hiking! - So I turned around at the point you see me. Native American graffiti, probably predating the white man.  It's all over Utah. - They call them 'petroglyphs.' The Colorado River as seen from Dead Horse State Park.
The blue 'lakes' are actually evaporation ponds for the potash mine.
