The wintry scene above features the impressive Double Arch in Arches National Park, Utah. Though not as famous as the golden "double arches," they've been around a bit longer and are easier on the eyes than their manmade counterpart, unless you're famished. There are approximately 2,000 arches in the Park. All or nearly all of them were created by wind and water erosion acting upon an upright fin of Navajo sandstone. Photo taken in early March of 2007.
