Arches National Park, Utah

Near Moab, Utah is one more of the most spectacular national parks in the United States: It has gotten the name of what there is a lot of: Arches. The area is filled with one amazing sight after another, so there is enough to look at.

Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah

This is the state of Utah’s symbol, and is seen everywhere. Even on the cars license plates it is reproduced. To see it, you have to go on a “good” hiking trip of 2.5 km upwards. It is recommended that you do not suffer from high thrusts, which is quite correct as some of the trail is cut into steep cliffs.

Wolfe Ranch

Where the trail up to Delicate Arch starts, Wolfe Ranch is located. In this inaccessible area, a family once lived – and the place has been good for one reason: there is a small brook. The little house to the right is the storehouse that has been highly needed since the winters can be very hard here.

Window Arches

To see many of the places, you have to drive in their car (everybody have at least one of them) to parking lots and then wear hiking boots if you want to see a little more. There are trails for wheelchair users too, but only where it is possible.

Double Arch, yes that’s what it’s called. Note the small people beneath

Turret Arch

There are chimneys in the “Garden of Eden” – yes that’s what they call the place!
