Arches National Park is one of the most popular national parks. It has a rugged desert beauty. One can discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms 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 amazes me with its formations, refreshes me with its trails, and inspires me with its sunsets.
My first stop is always Park Avenue with it’s amazing canyon walls.
