The story behind the pictures. The Trek to Windows Arch, Arches National Park, Moab, Utah The sign at the trailhead warned hikers: “It is further than you think. Wear a hat. Carry plenty of water. No facilities, no water at the arch.” The trailhead sign also said “10-mile loop” which meant that the arch was five miles away. Five miles there, and five miles back. The arch looked like it was “right there”---it was huge, just standing there looking at it, and yet it was five miles away. We were smart enough to pay attention to the sign. We had our hiking hats on, were carrying hiking sticks (to help us navigate the soft, sandy trail), and we added an extra canteen of water to our canteen belts (this was in 1983, no one was sporting fancy backpacks that had mesh pockets for water bottles; we were carrying Navy Surplus Store aluminum canteens on olive-drab canteen belts). It was nearly 100 degrees, no trees in sight, just endless sand, the same Navaho Red color as the arch itself. By the time we got to the arch, we knew it had been worth the trip. Windows Arch is one of this country’s greatest natural wonders. And if you want an idea of just how big it really is, that person standing below the arch, white shirt, dark pants…he’s 6-foot-4.
