🪨 Photo Description and Details

Below is a picture of Balanced Rock in Arches National Park during sunrise. I took it at 6:58 AM. In August of 2021, my family and I took a two-week road trip to 9 National Park. Arches National Park was the 6th park on our list. Out of the 9 National Parks, we visited during this trip, Arches was my favorite. We got up especially early this morning because we wanted to get to the Delicate Arch hike before it got too crowded. We passed the Balanced Rock on our way to that stop, and I was able to get this photo. I love how Balanced Rock looked as the sun was rising behind it. There are pretty colors in the sky and on the sandstone rocks.

Balanced Rock is an illusion as it looks like there is a large rock balancing on top of a much skinnier piece of sandstone. However, it is all attached and not actually “balancing” at all. One day, though, the balancing boulder on top will come tumbling down as erosion takes place over the years. The rock looks different from all angles, but the angle I photographed below is the angle where the rock looks like it is indeed balancing.
