Arches National Park

We didn't have a reservation and glad we didn't. No reservation required after 5 pm, so we just rolled right in and pretty much had the run of the place. Also, since it was in the evening, the colors in the sunset were breathtaking. It was cooler in the day so no issues hiking to the various arches.

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.
