Visiting the Arches National Park in southern Utah in the United States is like discovering another world. There are more than 2,000 rock arches naturally sculpted to exhaustion by water, wind, snow and ice for millions and millions of years, in a constant process, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We spent one day at the Arches National Park exploring some of the most amazing visuals of the American West. You can stay at moab Utah and enjoy the glorious views!
The Arches National Park in Utah
The Arches National Park is a wonderful place to go and can be linked to go to Colorado to visit the Mesa Verde, after passing through the Canyon de Chelly, but the winter did not help and we decided to continue our trip to Bluff, a small city of Utah, that is a great base to know many of the beauties of the Southern Utah as Monument Valley, Valley of Gods, Natural Bridges and others.
The beauties of Utah
Utah is an amazing state, filled with national parks, state parks, reserves and unbelievable natural beauties. It is home to the famous Mighty 5: Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion, the state’s 5 Powerful Parks.
