Arches National Park
in southeast Utah is a relatively compact, easily explorable place, since although the park has some backcountry areas, almost all the most impressive features are close to the road, and the nearby city of Moab
offers all necessary visitor facilities. The park contains over one thousand arches, large and small, formed by weathering of richly colored Entrada sandstone, together with a good variety of other eroded formations. The south side of the park adjoins the Colorado River
, a region only accessible by cross-country hikes.
