Sierra Club Regrets Use of Mesa Arch Photo
The Traveler brought the image to the attention of Sierra Club officials on Monday after Canyonlands officials said they were virtually certain the arch in the photo, which was used in a mailer sent to potential subscribers, was indeed Mesa Arch.
Sierra Club spokesman David Willett said today that so far the organization has been unable "to determine the exact location of the photo."
"It appears to be from a package of stock photos our mail vendor used," says Mr. Willett.
That said, he adds that, "it was not our intention to utilize a picture of a person standing on Mesa Arch. The Sierra Club doesn't condone illegal or unsafe activities in National Parks and the photo will not be used in any future publications."
