I’ve seen a lot of great sites in America and every time I was astonished by diversity of them and there was always something more brilliant than previous ones.
But Arches National Park is just mind blowing !!! This is something really different, than Grand Canyon or Antelope, there are about 2000 stone arches in the park, and of course the diamond of the arches called The Delicate Arch.
But let’s start with the monuments located at the beginning of the trail, first one is an enormously tall sandstone tower called The Organ.
While you stand near this “made in nature” skyscraper you feel so much small…
I lost the count of my wows in this park, as each and every monument is unique by it’s shape or kind or position !
I mean look at this Balanced Rock ! Incredible !
And this is called The Garden of Eden
And finally the most famous arch of all The Delicate Arch.
To get to this arch you need to hike more than 2km over steep rocks and hills, but it’s totally worth it , it’s so beautiful !
The best time to take photos of the arch is at sunset when light is really warm and falls straight on the front of the arch, lots of people are gathering there to see it at that time of the day , it’s really brilliant , have a look.
Then I stayed a bit longer till it was totally dark and you could see the stars , and look at this sky !
To be honest this part of the journey was my favorite one, I was so amazed with those natural wonders that I didn’t want to leave the place, the area is enormously big and you need few days to explore the whole park, I’ve seen most of it and it’s enough to say this was the best of the best!
Now I’m preparing to the longest part of my journey to Grand Teton and Yellowstone.
