Arches National Park
Positioned in a “high desert” with elevations ranging from 4,085 to 5,653 feet above sea level in southeast Utah, Arches National Park contains the greatest density of natural sandstone arches in the world. Throughout the park, rock layers reveal millions of years of deposition, erosion and other geologic events.
The climate is one of very hot summers, cold winters and very little rainfall. Even on a daily basis, temperatures may fluctuate as much as 50 degrees. As a result, the plants and animals in this park have many adaptations that enable them to survive these conditions and some species are found only in this area.
