Arches National Park, Utah, Nov. 2, 2012: Located just outside of Moab, Arches National Park has over 2,000 natural stone arches and spans 76,679 acres. Some of these features are Balanced Rock and Landscape Arch, a very thin and long arch with a span of 290 feet. We happened to be there on a really nice day. The blue sky made the shapes and colors of the rock look unreal. And it’s so quiet. Seemed like another planet.
