This picture was what first popped into my mind when I read "Golden Arches" - not McDonalds. It's more or less golden, and it is definitely an arch - it's a double arch called Grosvenor Arch, 152 feet high and unusual for it's location. If it were located anywhere else it would be a big tourist attraction, but it is located 17 miles south of Cannonville on Cottonwood Road (dirt). Another breathtaking Utah scene!

Nice photo. Reminds me of Garden of the Gods in Colorado.

Is that Cottonwood canyon just east of Salt Lake City? There is an arch formation similar to this one in Arches National Park in Southeastern Utah.

Great shot!

I want to go to Arches SO much - but it hasn't worked out yet. This may be the one you are talking about, though it's quite a bit further south than Salt Lake City. The road runs from Hwy 12 in Cannonville south to Hwy 89, just east of the Paria Ranger Station. I think it's the only road that runs through the geological feature called the Cockscomb. This is also the road that goes to Kodachrome Basin State Park - we drove past but didn't have enough time to stop and explore another colorful spot that's a bit off the beaten path (and saved for a future trip).

The place I am thinking of is just east of Moab, on the Colorado border.

Must be a different place - this road is more in the center of the state and definitely west of Moab.
