Arches National Park, UT

The red rock landscape of Arches National Park awakens the spirit and challenges the imagination: balanced rocks teeter unthinkably on pedestals; sandstone arches—of which there are more than 2,500—frame the sky with peekaboo windows; and formations like the Three Penguins greet you at points throughout the 73,379-acre park. Far from a stereotypical beige-tone palette with the occasional cactus, the desert here is adorned with a rich tapestry of colors: red, orange, purple, pink, creamy ivory, deep chocolate, and even shades of turquoise. The Fiery Furnace burns like a wildfire at sunset, and acres of petrified sand dunes rise across the horizon. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.

A Wonderland of Rock Formations

Fiery Furnace should be visited on a ranger-led tour. A maze of narrow canyons, spires and arches densely pack this helter-skelter landscape.
