Description:

Dark Angel is a stunning, 150 foot tall sandstone pillar in Arches National Park. You can see this geologic wonder on the Devil's Garden Primitive Loop trail (you'll also see the Double-O Arch along the way, and hiking to Dark Angel from that point will add one mile to your trip). It gets its name from its shape; over the years, the sandstone has been eroded into the shape of a hunched-over, brooding angel.
