It's only a short walk for a lame senior citizen to a vantage point near the Windows Arches where he can train a long zoom at one of the breathtaking rock formations this national park is named for. Luckily, a couple of hikers appeared at North Window Arch at just the right moment, giving the photograph a sense of scale. (Click on the photo for a desktop-sized version.)
