Head north along the river out of Moab and look for the Arches National Park entrance -- well marked. Pick your spot. Park and walk.
Balanced rock is one of the Arches National Park icons but the best way to approach it is to leave the parking lot behind. I walked back and forth looking for the framing that I wanted. This is a shot I always had sought but had delayed shooting.This time I was determined to get it. As the sun continued to set, a stream of clouds slowly drifted into the scene and made the shot. You gotta love those timely clouds.
