Shown above is a distant thunderstorm as viewed at sunrise through Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah. A relatively easy walk, Mesa Arch is just ½ mile (0.8 km) from the visitor’s parking area. This striking arch took shape when water pooled and eventually eroded through bedrock, composed of Navajo sandstone, at the edge of the mesa. Photo taken on August 26, 2021
