May 17, 2018 by  

  • This vast rugged landscape…

…of rose-colored sandstone…

…with more than 2,000 arch formations…

…& thousands of other wonders…

…in the shape of pinnacles…spires…needles

…hoodoos…gargoyles…balanced rocks…

…& domes…all team together…

…to make it Awesome & Amazing Arches!

Today’s Treats

  • Balanced Rock…

…estimated to weigh 3,577 tons (about equivalent to 27 blue whales.)

  • Courthouse Towers – with commanding spires that resemble skyscrapers…

…& just across the street…The 3 Gossips…

…attempt to compete at 350 feet.

  • Skyline arch – looks can be deceiving…

…hard to believe that its 71 ft across & 33.5 ft high!

  • Sand Dune Arch – tightly tucked between two large sandstone fins…

…with minimal sun makes it a cool respite in the heat of the day.

  • Double Arch – phone went dead…had to download this!

FUN-fact – This little park – at only 76,000+ acres – packs a lot of punches with hiking & biking – whatever’s to your liking.

More FF – And contains the highest density of natural arches in the world.
