Hike of the Week: Delicate Arch

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 href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/outdoors/50642911-117/park-arch-arches-delicate.html.csp" target="_blank">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.
