Rangers discovered the body of a woman in the popular Devils Garden part of Arches National Park in Utah, the park service reported.

The woman’s body was recovered at about 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, rangers said in a news release.

She has not been identified and no cause of death has been released, rangers said. The body was transferred to the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado is assisting with the investigation.

Arches National Park, near Moab in southeastern Utah, covers 119 square miles and sees more than 1.5 million visitors a year.

The Devils Garden area features “arches, spires, and a large concentration of narrow rock walls called ‘fins,’” park officials said. It’s “one of the premier locations in the park.”
