If you have been following my trip to Southern Utah posts you will know that I have posted a lot about the arches we visited. This arch was my favorite for 5 reasons.
It is so big! If you look at the picture below you will see the people climbing around the base.
As scary as it is for me, I climbed up on part of the arch and my brother @jarvie got this cool shot.
The view from the arch is beautiful.
There is a really cool rock formation as you walk out to the arch called the parade of elephants. There is a whole line of them. I got this one the best.
It is a really easy hike/stroll on a red sand path.
This hike 10/10.

*An extra point for the parade of elephants you pass on the way to the arch.
It is hard to say that this is a hike when it is quick and flat. It loved it and would recommend it to anyone visiting Arches National Park.
According to the National Park Service
Double arch is the tallest (112 feet/ 34 meters) and second longest (144 feet/ 44 meters) in the park.
Yay for super cool arches, especially this awesome double arch!
