Arches National Park: See first hand what water can do to a landscape

Arches National Park is known for its colorful landscape and arched rock formations. We got an early start and hit the trails to explore several on our own. My favorite arches were Delicate Arch, Tunnel Arch, and Private Arch, but we didn’t get to them all.

“Arches National Park preserves over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, like the world-famous Delicate Arch, as well as many other unusual rock formations. In some areas, the forces of nature have exposed millions of years of geologic history. The extraordinary features of the park create a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures that is unlike any other in the world.” – National Park Service

As usual, we went a little off trail to get some photos, but it was worth getting to see the amazing formations left behind by water’s destruction.
