Last week I took some time with family to visit Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. One of Utah’s five national parks (Utah has the 3rd highest number of national parks in the US after Alaska and California), Arches features some very unique geological formations not found anywhere else on earth. Arches National Park offers amazing scenery, hiking, camping, climbing, and other recreation opportunities.
The park entrance is easily accessible and just a few minutes outside Moab. It is a four hour drive from Salt Lake City. A visit here can easily be combined with visits to other nearby national parks such as Canyonlands, also near Moab, or state parks like Dead Horse Point. The Moab area is an outdoor enthusiast’s wonderland and a place you should not pass up.
