Picture Gallery - Arches


Arches is one of the most spectacular national parks in the state of Utah, USA with amazing rock formations, natural monuments and about 2000 natural arches. Some of them (the Balanced Rock, the Three Gossips, the Courthouse) can be admired directly from the main road in the park. Short hikes (30 minutes) offer access to the Sand Dune arch, Double Arch, North and South Windows arches. Take a longer hike (1-1:30 hour) to the world famous Delicate Arch. The best views to this arch are before sunset so be prepared with a flashlight for your return. Avoid hiking without a guide in the Fiery Furnace slot canyons, and generally avoid hiking alone in the park. The longest (several hours) and most rewarding hike is the Devil's garden trail. This trail goes to the Landscape arch (the longest natural arch in the world reaching almost 90 m) and the Double O Arch. While in Arches National Park take a day trip to Canyonlands National Park and Moab. From Moab you can experience some of the best mountain biking trails in the world. Wildlife in the park is rear but you can occasionally spot a bighorn sheep. Weather is very hot in the Summer reaching 100F. The best time to visit is Spring or late Fall (October-November).
