Mesa Arch is a unique type of arch located on the eastern edge of the Island in the Sky Mesa at Canyonlands National Park. It is referred to as a “pothole arch”. The arch sits on the edge of a 1,200-foot drop into Buck Canyon. The arch offers a “keyhole view” of White Rim Country, and if you step back a few steps, you can also frame the lofty La Sal Mountains with the arch.

Apart from its technical description, Mesa Arch is one of the most highly sought-after spots for photographers, both professional and amateur alike. It is considered the crown jewel of Canyonlands National Park and is also considered one of the best spots to capture a sunrise photo. Due to its popularity, getting one of the prime photo spots during sunrise can be quite a challenge, and photographers often need to be in position at the arch 2 hours or more before sunrise to ensure they capture the perfect shot.
