18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Arches National Park with Snowcapped La Sal Mountains

My favorite time to travel to Arches National Park is during early Spring when temps remain cool, the crowds haven't arrived yet, and snow still clings to the La Sal Mountains. This image is of Turret Arch and the nearby rock fins, with the La Sal Mountains looming behind them.
