Arch 4-34, Shot Canyon
NABSQNO 12S 592591 4230148 Utah

This giant pothole arch has no name because of National Park Service and US Geological Survey policies. It is located on the rim of Shot Canyon, in the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park, Utah, and is cataloged by Vreeland as number 4-34. Here NABS member Alex Ranney is shown pacing off its 54-foot span. The arch is shown on the 7.5 minute topo map Spanish Bottom, Utah 1988-PE, as simply "Natural Arch." This photo by David Brandt-Erichsen was featured on the cover of a special issue of SPAN on natural arches in the Maze.
