Arches National Park

Arches National Park is a landscape of contrasting colors, land forms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red-rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.

A land over 65 million years old — the story begins thousands of feet under water, where hydraulic forces carved the formations we see today. Geologists have mapped the timeline of erosion amazingly.

Arches National Park lives in the south east central part of Utah. The park features uncountable amounts of cliffs, spires, peaks, and valleys. Among the thousands of arches is the Delicate Arch — one of Utah's most iconic formations, featured on license plates, advertisements, billboards, and countless other media. People are often fooled by photography. This ancient masterpiece is over 60 feet tall in reality. Made of Entrada Sandstone, it glows a brilliant red day and night, and often houses white-throated swift birds on the peak of its curve.
