Arches National Park, Utah



Arches National Park preserves over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.

The park is located near Moab, Utah, and is 119 square miles (309 km²) in size. Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Since 1970, 42 arches have toppled because of erosion. Arches National Park receives 10 inches (250 mm) of rain a year on average. (from www.wikipedia.org)

Most famous features of the park are:

1. Delicate Arch— a lone-standing arch which has become a symbol of
Utah

2. Balanced Rock — a large balancing rock, the size of three school buses

3.Double Arch — two arches, one on top of the other

4.Landscape Arch — a very thin, very long arch over 300 feet (100 m);
the largest in the park

5.Turret Arch
