Arches National Park

Arches National Park is possibly one of the most beautiful parks we’ve been to during our road trip. Seeing the large sandstone arch formations created by wind erosion in the red sunset lighting is quite a wonder.

Arches took a day out of our trip, starting and ending our day at the visitor’s center. The trails were easy enough to follow. We hiked to the Devil’s Garden, where we saw tall formations stacked side by side like dominoes!

We went around December, where snow was still all the ground! We navigated slippery rocks, frozen rocky puddles, and steep trails.

With over 2000 arches, the hike was very scenic and beautiful! Coming from the luscious green mountains, I’ve never seen anything quite like this. Red, dry, and very magnificent.

The best thing about going during the winter is that there weren’t many other visitors.

A little corner of the park just to ourselves. 🙂

  1. We went to Arches in the fall (after all the kids were back in school). It wasn’t as crowded as the summer, but there were still plenty of people there. But we had an absolute blast! (You can check out our adventure here, if you’re interested: http://lotsasmilesphoto.com/2017/04/12/my-favorite-arches/ ) Now we’re simply in love with national parks in the winter! We just got back from Bryce and Zion, and they’re just magical with a light dusting of snow!
