Arches in Canyonlands

Most people take pictures of arches in Arches National Park.  However, similar sandstone formations dominate the landscape in Canyonlands National Park.  The less-traveled northern entrance to Canyonlands has an interesting arch hiding behind a sandstone mound to the south of the road as you approach the canyon.  This arch (which I believe is called Spyglass Arch) can be reached by scrambling up a steep sandstone slope.  The light reflected off the rock casts an eerie, orange glow on the red/orange sandstone.
