Delicate Arch Viewpoint Inaccessible
Wolfe Ranch and the hiking trail to Delicate Arch are open, but flood waters and mud have blocked the road to Delicate Arch Viewpoint.

Community Artist - A Day in the Life
You’ve already let everyone know where you’ll be today since your schedule has been available at the park, on the park website, and on CNHA’s website for quite some time. You are scheduled to be at the La Sal Mountains Viewpoint in Arches at 9:00 am. After showing the entrance station staff your volunteer sticker, you swing by the visitor center at 8:30 am and display your sandwich board, which you have updated with today’s location and time information. This makes it easy for folks to find you, especially those who haven’t heard of the program prior to their arrival (which is most of them). You pick up a park radio and say a quick hello to the NPS staff at the information desk, letting them know where you’ll be and that you’d love it if they sent visitors your way.
Did You Know?
Lizards, including the colorful collared lizard, are one of the most frequently seen animals at Arches. When not chasing flies or basking in the sun, they are often seen doing what appears to be push-ups. This odd dance might enhance their stereoscopic vision, helping them see what's looking back at them.
