Delicate Arch is a 65-foot-tall (20 m) freestanding natural arch located in Arches National Park. Delicate Arch is formed of Entrada Sandstone. The original sandstone fin was gradually worn away by weathering and erosion, leaving the arch. Other arches in the park were formed the same way but, due to placement and less dramatic shape, are not as famous. During the summer, white-throated swifts nest in the top of the arch
