Arches is one of the most convenient national parks we have visited. The main road runs all the way through and offers plenty of opportunities for turnouts and photo ops. The convenience, though, is coupled with crowds, so don’t expect it is an easy task to get a perfect unobstructed shot. It also gets very hot in the park, so choose to visit in the morning or later in the afternoon. Sunset time will offer amazing new perspective of the Arches, with multitude of shades of stone and sand coming out in the rays of sun.

Delicate sandstone arches are unique geological formations that were formed as a result of thousand of years of ever changing heat, cold, ice, wind and underground movements.

Some of the most accessible arches include the Windows, Double Arch, Delicate Arch from Upper Viewpoint (though you can chose to take a 3 hour hike and get up close to it) and Devil’s Garden.
