Arches National Park

Arches National Park is the only place in the world where visitors have a chance to see such a large array of natural arches, whittled over the eons by water and wind. Located in eastern Utah, it has been documented that the park has over 2,000 natural stone arches within its boundaries. These timeless, red sandstone arches have served as a backdrop to countless Hollywood movies, such as “Indiana Jones“, “Thelma and Louise“ and many of those starring John Wayne. However, there are other geological formations besides arches: colossal sandstone fins, massive balanced rocks, soaring pinnacle fins, bridges and they all add to the parks natural value. They have been given names that somehow perfectly describe them: Courthouse Towers, Parade of Elephants, and Balanced Rock, being just some of them. Hikers can wander around this wonderland of red rocks and blue sky on short and long trails and rock climbers can rejoice in the mesmerizing surroundings.
