Arches National Park

September 20, 2014

Arches is beautiful but not the most scenic one we have been in.
The geology of this area is really fascinating.   We have sat in orientation films in all the parks we visited.  The one in Arches was the best one of them all.  The visitors center had a great explanation of how the entire Colorado Plateau was formed over hundreds of millions of years.

It took a 1.5 mile hike to see this arch. It is the longest one in the park.
It's over 100 yards long.

There are over 2,000 cataloged arches here.
