Arches National Park is famous for having the largest concentration of natural rock arches of anywhere in the world with over 2,300. On the surface it is a pretty straightforward and comparatively small National Park. As Elizabeth will describe in her post on Friday, we were able to cover almost all of the advertised points of interest in a jam-packed two days.
Most visitors center their visits around various pull-offs and short hikes to see iconic landmark arches. And we were no different. But merely jumping from arch to arch misses the larger picture of the landscape, including petrified sand dunes, towering monoliths, silhouetted sunsets and our favorite, the Fiery Furnace. I hope we were able to capture some of that beautiful larger picture in our video.
