An Unnamed Arch

There are so many rock features on the Colorado Plateau that many of them go unnoticed and unnamed. This can happen because of inaccessibility but also because of the sheer numbers of unusual features. It is interesting to walk around and see these interesting formations. Some of the features that are unnamed on maps or guides have local names that are only used by those who frequent the area. Many of those names turn out to be similarly applied throughout the Plateau, so you will often encounter features with the same or very similar names.
