Arches National Park

Arches National Park is located just outside of Moab, UT. The park is known for preserving over 2000 of the largest natural sandstone arches in the world, including the world famous “Delicate Arch”. It is 119 sq. miles in size with a peak elevation of 5,653 feet at Elephant Butte. You can enjoy sightseeing by car, foot, or bike. Picnicking and camping are allowed and encouraged.

Native Americans first utilized the area searching for game animals, wild plant foods, and stones for tools and weapons. Pictographs and petroglyphs panels can still be seen as they are an authentic, historic documentation.

Pinyon and Gnarled Juniper trees are native to the area and add a splash of color against the red sandstone. Most animal species in the area are nocturnal, but you might spot a mule deer, kit fox, or a variety of small rodents and reptiles. Arhces National Park is just another reason people love living in Southern Utah. Single entry fees are minimal or annual passes allow for continuous enjoyment.
