Arches National Park is perhaps the most breathtaking of Utah's many spectacular parks; Arches National Park is home to over 2,000 natural arches. It lies atop an underground salt bed, some 300 million years old and as much as several thousand feet thick in places, which caused the formation of the arches, spires, balanced rocks, and eroded monoliths in the area.
