10/28/2017 Sky View Arch, Canyonland National Park, UT - Similar to the Paul Bunyans Potty, but little northwest. There is no indication of this arch on hiking guide, so I called it 'Sky View Arch', because all I can see otherside of the arch is sky from the ground. Again seems to the ruin in the cave under the arch but not sure, too high to conform.
