- Type: National Parks
NileGuide Expert Says:
Must-visit, especially to see world-famous Delicate Arch
- Arches National Park is known for its natural sandstone arches, carved by hundreds of years of wind, water, and weather. This park has over 2,000 of them! Delicate Arch, featured on one version of the Utah license plate, is probably the world's most famous sandstone arch. An arch, by the way, is basically an exposed rock that has a hole in it formed by natural forces. A natural bridge is a type of arch, but it was specifically formed by water which may or may not still be flowing beneath. But no matter how you define them, natural arches are beautiful and just plain cool.
