These aren't exactly the same card but they're both from the same place, Arches National Park, and both showing the Delicated Arch.

Delicate Arch has become the unofficial symbol of Utah.  Towering eighty feet over hikers, Delicate Arch is one of the highlights of Arches National Park and is possibly the most beautiful arch in the world.

On the back of the card: Delicate Arch, in Arches National Park, is the most famous formation in this spectcular park, north of Moab, Utah. It was formed by wind and rain erosion on Entrada Sandstone. The salmon colored arch is 45 feet (13 metres)  high and 33 feet (10 metres) wide.
