Arches National Park

Arches National Park is located about 4 hours south-east of Salt Lake City, UT (depending on how fast you drive, of course). This area was established as a national monument in 1929 and was later established as a national park in 1971.

Arches National Park contains the largest concentration of natural sandstone arches in the world. With the addition of the Lost Spring Canyon area, the park is 76,519 acres in size and contains over 2000 arches--including the world famous Delicate Arch--as well as many other interesting and unusual rock formations.

I began visiting Arches National Park when I was about 10 years old, and have since visited the park at least 20 times. It has been an interesting journey to watch the changes that have taken place during this time: several large chunks have broken off of Landscape Arch; much of the sand that was under Sand Dune Arch has blown away; several changes have been introduced by the Park Service to help protect the park including requiring permits to enter the Fiery Furnace area.

I believe that Arches National Park is one of the world's must-see sites and I highly recommend it to you. This gallery contains numerous color photographs of Arches National Park. More photographs of the are can be found in the Arches National Park black and white gallery.
