Rattlesnake Canyon Arches Morning 1

Rattlesnake Canyon

From far below the iconic Rattlesnake Arch (also known as Centennial Arch as well as a few other names), the view from the Arches Loop Trail is amazing. Overhead, the soft light or morning begins to light the sky, making for a beautiful start to a day in the McInnis Canyons Area just west of Grand Junction.
