Arches National Park Panoramic Picture - Delicate Arch

SKU: ANP1
This panoramic photograph of Delicate Arch features a late-day view of Arches National Park's most famous icon. Delicate Arch balances at the edge of a canyon and can be reached via a three-mile (round-trip) walking trail. Water and ice, extreme temperatures, underground salt movement and 100 million years of erosion are responsible for the scenery of Arches National Park. Delicate Arch is carved from sandstone deposited during the Jurassic Period some 150 million years ago. There are more than 2000 cataloged arches in the area, including some of the most scenic arches in the world. In the distance are the snow-covered La Sal Mountains.

Arches National Park Panoramic Picture - Broken Arch

SKU: ANP2
This panorama of Broken Arch at Arches National Park was taken by James Blakeway. The trail to Broken Arch is a mild trek though varied terrain, highlighted by colorful rock gardens. While the Park has a great concentration of these landforms, the hunt for arches in this fractured landscape is not as easy as it may seem. As recently as 1970, official literature stated that the Park contained “nearly 90 arches,” which is less than .05% of the current known total. Three decades of concentrated exploration by a group of dedicated, curious “arch-hunters” has established a scientific protocol for surveying the Park and has documented over 2,000 of its namesake features.

Arches National Park Panoramic Picture - Double Arch

SKU: ANP3
This panorama of Arches National Park, taken by James Blakeway, highlights the amazing natural stone arch formations known as Double Arch. Arches National Park is in the heart of canyon country in southeastern Utah and is considered one of America’s scenic wonders. The Park preserves 76,679 acres of high desert on the Colorado Plateau, punctuated by rocky ridges, canyons, fins, towers, monoliths, pinnacles, and more than 2,000 arches. The larger arch of Double Arch is the tallest and third widest of the arches in the Park, which range from sliver thin cracks with a minimum opening of three feet, to one arch with an opening of more than 300 feet.

Arches National Park Panoramic Pictures

As a National Park in eastern Utah, Arches National Park is the location of over 2,000 cataloged natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, a 65-foot tall freestanding natural arch depicted on Utah license plates and postage stamps. Panoramic pictures of Arches National Park most commonly capture the Delicate Arch, as it is the most well-known of the arches within the park.

Early prospectors to the area nicknamed the rock formations the "Devil's Garden", but the scenery captured in today's pictures of Arches National Park were often given equally-creative names over the years. A trio of spires is named "The Three Gossips"; a free-standing column the "Tower of Babel"; and a cluster of rock formations the "Parade of Elephants".

Panoramic pictures of Arches National Park capture extremes in visuals, from the rich natural sandstone rock formations in stark contrast to the distant snow-covered La Sal mountains. The simple beauty of this U.S. National Park is remarkable for the extremes that led to its creation, with over 100 million years of erosion, underground salt floes and extreme temperatures creating the park visited by so many today.
