It took us five years, but we finally got around to making the most-famous trail in Utah into a Hike of the Week.

In fairness to us, a lot of you have already hiked to Delicate Arch. But we figured you might want to reminisce or there are a few folks out there that visited Arches National Park without straying far from the car.
