The parks afford a unique view of the architecture fashioned by nature itself, featuring imposing rock formations sculpted by rivers and natural arches that seem to hail from a fairy-tale world. However, the parks’ beauty doesn’t simply lie in their geological configurations, but it extends to the night sky, where the Milky Way seems to almost brush the Earth.
Arches National Park offers a unique experience thanks to its natural wonders. Its sandstone arches, created by erosion, seem like sculptures hewn by superior craftsmen. Each corner of the park reveals a new arch, as though nature itself wanted to surprise and amaze us.
Our footsteps echo in the morning silence, fostering a feeling of ceremony and respect for our surroundings. Once we reach the arch, we are faced with a unique sight. The arch’s elegant, streamlined shape is silhouetted against the surrounding panorama, creating a fascinating contrast between the arch’s delicate poise and the solidity of the rocks around it, while the sun rises and its golden rays light up the arch.
Nights spent at the Canyonlands and Arches National Parks allow you to witness an unforgettable celestial show. Away from city light pollution, the sky here opens up in all its magnificence. The Milky Way with its stars touches the stone arches, almost brushing delicately against them.
