Arches National Park

Go in the spring or fall. The Devil's Garden and Windows sections have many cool arches and lots of great hiking.

[JJ, 11/03/2021]

The allure of a natural arch -- How did it get here? What if it falls down while we're looking at it? -- is classic fodder for road trips, and this park has a lot of them. The park is open year-round, but it's hot in summer and cold in winter.
