Delicate Arch adorns Utah's license plates, and it's worth the 1.5-mile hike to see the real thing. The late afternoon sun hits Delicate Arch with a spectacular flare - pure, 100-percent-natural eye candy. Scores of photographers line up along the edge of the "bowl" that Delicate Arch sits on. If you want to put your hands on the arch or have your photo taken in front of it, make sure to get it done quickly. There's no shortage of photo-Nazis who don't want you "ruining" their pictures.
