Arches National Park is a U.S. National Park in eastern Utah, located on the Colorado. Within the park, you can find over 2,000 natural sandstone arches as well as a verity of unique geological resources and formations. You will also be able to see the world-famous Delicate Arch, a 65-foot-tall freestanding natural arch.



The park is located just outside of Moab, Utah and sits on 76,679 acres. Arches lies atop an underground evaporite layer of salt bed, which is the main cause of how the arches, spires, balanced rocks, sandstone fins, and eroded monoliths in the area formed.Although the formations appear to be rugged and durable, they are actually very fragile and the 700,000 park visitors each year are a constant threat to their sustainability.
