Arches National Park in the USA


The bare desert in southeastern Utah resembles the surface of a fantastic planet

Roughly hewn columns of all sizes and shapes jut out from the ground, but about 200 arches pierce the stone walls and give this area its name: Arches. Not only arches are interesting, but everything that surrounds as a whole. Here and picturesque landscapes, and an unusual path, passing through the tops of the so-called rocky edges, and a certain atmosphere of mystery.

Arches National Park is located in Utah, very close to the city of Moab. The most convenient way to get here is by car, but there are other options. Since Moab is an exclusively tourist city, then if you want to spend the night here, get ready and book places in hotels and hotels in advance.

Arches National Park is a hill with red monolithic rocks lying on top of the salt pad, which was once the bottom of an ancient sea. It is unique in that there are more than 2 thousand natural arches, as well as pinacles, stone crests, petrified dunes, picturesque geological formations and balancing stones.

Although there is little rain in Arches, it was mostly water that created this landscape

Rain and melting snow dissolve cement in sandstone and wash sand from it. In winter, the water in the cracks freezes and wedges them, breaking off entire layers of rock. Cement is unevenly distributed. Places where it is less blurred faster, as a result of more durable areas remain in the form of ridges, towers and arches.

Arches National Park is one of those attractions that every tourist really wants to see with his own eyes. The Internet is replete with beautiful photos of elegant arches and unusual natural formations from its lands, but do they convey all the atmosphere and beauty? Of course not. Natural arches are geological formations of sandstone, which are powerful stone vaults that are subject to natural natural processes.

There is no one in the Harok Park, each of them is unique in its own way. On our planet, natural arches are found in different places, but their greatest concentration is in the Arches National Park. This is what makes him attractive for people from all over the world who come to Utah to see for themselves that nature is the best sculptor in the world.
