Arches National Park, which has more than 2,000 natural stone arches, closed Delicate Arch on Friday for a about six hours before it reopened, the park said on Twitter.

“The trail up to Delicate Arch has reopened for use. Winter conditions make for slippery hiking; proceed with caution,” the tweet said. 

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.
