Example Fin Natural Arch
NABSQNO 12S-619749-4295394. Double-O Arch is a spectacular double fin natural arch eroded through Entrada sandstone. By coincidence, the opening has expanded to create a catenary shaped lintel. Thus, it is quite strong and long-lived.
Double-O Arch is located in the Devils Garden area of Arches National Park, Utah. Access is via the Devils Garden trail, about 2 miles from the trailhead and 1 mile past famous Landscape Arch.
