Delicate Arch and Friends Under Moonlight

I climbed up the arduous trail to Delicate Arch in arches national Park, to observe the sunset. Afterwards, I stayed and met a group of young men on a camping trip to the park. They wanted a photo together so I suggested they hike around to the base of the arch with a flashlight. The sky was perfectly clear and a 3/4 moon was out to illuminate the scene.
