Sacred Spaces

Delicate Arch

Delicate Arch

This is Delicate Arch. To me, this is sacred ground. To me, the entire Arches National Park and the surrounding land is sacred ground. The first act I took when getting out of the car was to get on all fours and kiss the ground. This place is the papal ring I give the kiss of honor. It’s a place from which I draw energy, the place where I feel most at home in the natural world, the place I return to whenever I am in deep distress. I had made the hike to Delicate Arch on a number of previous visits. This was the first time I was blessed to be in it’s presence with the setting of the sun.

  1. This place is beautiful! We were lucky to spend a few hours hiking there in July 2012. Glad to see someone else enjoying one of America’s truly awesome places!
