I realize that this is yet another view of this arch recently. But we just got back from another trip there. About eleven miles down the Cottonwood Canyon Road south of Cannonville, Utah is one of the most spectacular natural stone arches in the State of Utah. Situated in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, it is called Grosvenor Arch, after Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (1875-1966) President of the National Geographic Society and editor of the National Geographic Society Magazine. The dirt road to the arch is not for low clearance vehicles or the faint of heart. We have seen people turn around and go back when faced with the ruts, the mud, sand and rocks of the road.
