Cedar Arch, Rattlesnake Canyon 1

Rattlesnake Canyon

Cedar Arch, also referred to as First Arch, is a beautiful work of sandstone that from above looks down into a valley. This image of the sun rising over the top of the glowing arch was taken in the morning hours after we had ascended the Class 3 cliff from the canyon floor below.
