Stopped here on our drive down Cottonwood Canyon Road. Had the place to ourselves for a bit. The arch is spectacular - make sure to walk all the way up to stand under it.

I short distance from Kodachrome State Park which is a stones throw from Bryce Nat'l, Grosvenor Arch is a fun drive on dirt roads to arrive and stay for a while. When in the neighborhood, it's worth the time to go see.
