Photos From Arches National Park In Utah
So unique that only "seeing is believing," these photos will whet your appetite for a visit to Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.
A photographic visit to one of America's stellar national parks.
Arches National Park in Utah, USA attracts visitors from all over the world. Make it a first stop on your own dream vacation.
Arches National Park is perhaps unique in how much of the park you can visually visit while staying seated in your automobile.
The photos in this article were taken in mid-July when outside temperatures are so often among the hottest of the year, and rainfall of less than one inch among the smallest of any month of the year. On the other hand, the heat is less uncomfortable due to the low humidity; and some raindrops evaporate without ever reaching the ground.
It is obvious that at one time water was present in abundance at Arches National Park, naturally carving out the magnificent landscape and the arches which make it world famous today.
In one of these photos you will see Landscape Arch. It requires a short hike to reach it. On the way to it, and its adjoining arch, I met the variety of visitors which attests to the park's international reputation. If you know another language, in addition to English, the chances are good that even on this short half mile hike you will meet someone else who knows that language.
I met fellow hikers from England, Holland, Thailand, Poland, Mexico, Germany, Korea, Austria, China, Switzerland, Belgium, Australia, Denmark, Spain, India, South Africa, Japan, and France, as well as Americans from across America. I met all those hikers on just that short hike to the famous Landscape Arch in the park.
Enjoy these photos, but put Arches National Park on your Bucket List of places to see at least once during your lifetime. You will remember it forever, even without the help of these few photos.
