Utah is a stunning state! Although my itinerary captures Arches National Park, there a lot many other places I wanted to see in Utah. The landscapes are so dramatic that it’s hard to believe they are natural formations. I was concerned about the glaring heat of May, but if you are in such a place as this, the excitement takes over everything else!
This park contains more than 2,000 natural arches, some even millions of years old, formed by continuous erosion. The largest arch in the park, Landscape Arch, spans almost 306 feet. The park requires at least one full day for exploration of key landmarks which includes the two Window arches, North and South, Turret Arch , Double Arch and many others. The most famous Arch is the Delicate Arch (seen on all Utah license plates) which requires a good 1.5 miles hike, be prepared to face extreme heat conditions during the summer and some steep stretches of climb. This itself should take about 2-3 hours.
I missed seeing a lot of things in Utah, but that’s just the limitation of time and nothing else! I have reserved in my mind Canyonlands, Dead Horse and other places for the next trip already.
My name is Lovya. I left home when I was 17, to study and pursue my dream of being an Engineer, which I am now! But my love for travel never parted with me and even as I grow older, I know there are places and adventures in the world which I have to see. It feeds my soul in a unique way. This blog is a means for me to share my travel stories and hear about your experiences.
