Arches National Park
Located north of Moab, this unique park is bordered by the Colorado River and is home to over 2,000 natural sandstone arches. Delicate Arch is the most famous natural stone arch in the world. Referred to as "The Arch" by many arriving visitors for whom it is at the top of their must-see lists, Delicate Arch has an allure that is hard to explain but impossible to deny. The light opening beneath Delicate Arch is 46 feet (14 m) high. Landscape Arch, one of the world's longest stone spans, stretches 306 feet (93.3 m), yet is only about 11 feet (3.4 m) thick at its center. Both are two of its most noteworthy sights, as is Balanced Rock, soaring above the desert in the middle of the park.
