My theme is Tour de Utah--featuring everything I find interesting about my home state. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Don't forget your sunscreen, you're in for one wild ride for the next 29 days!)
Now on to the show ...
Arches National Park!
If you click on the photo's source, you just might be blown away by all the beauty there! I know I am. Can you believe something as gorgeous as that exists in my state?
Over 300 million years ago, a salt bed was deposited over the Colorado Plateau which now lies under these beautiful spires, fins and monoliths of stone. After much flooding and wind-shaping with the aid of the salt, we can now enjoy this beautiful sight.
Many people from around the world have camped and hiked, and yes, even biked here!
Location: 5 mi (8 km) north of Moab, along Hwy 191.
Seen any impressive natural formations you'd love to share?
