Arches National Park — where arid wilds run with the wind.
If you’ve never been to Arches National Park, then it might be hard to imagine the scope of such a place. Its massive sandstone arches tower above the horizon–a horizon that seemingly melts into infinity across the desert landscape. The winds slither through the red and carmel rock walls while scarce vegetation dots the ground beneath. It’s as if a sorcerer, armed with geological witchcraft, transformed the spiraling arches and red rock sand overnight as you look on in complete perplexity. And it never gets old.
I’ve been here before… several times, yet each visit brings with it a new perspective. This was my perspective during a recent journey into one of America’s best National Parks.
