I took these photos from my archives of our road trip out west in September 2013.  Hard to believe it is just about a year ago.  You can click on this link to see more of the Arches National Park in Utah.

The park is located in a high desert with elevations ranging from 4,085 to 5,653 feet above sea level.  This map will show you where it is located.  

I read that it contains the greatest density of natural sandstone arches in the world.  According to the above link the park covers 73,000 acres, and has over 2,000 arches.

These photos don't show those famous arches but the rock formations, in their own way, are equally as amazing.  

We lucked out that day, the skies made a beautiful back drop.
