Arches National Park
Arches National Park consists of over 2,000 natural
sandstone arches, like the world-famous Delicate Arch, shown above, as well as
many other unusual rock formations. Throughout the park, the forces of nature
have exposed millions of years of geologic history. The incredible
features of the park create a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms
and textures that is unique and unlike any other in the world.
