Four Awesome Ways To Spend One Day In Arches National Park

After Zion, Arches is the most popular national park in Utah. It's not the second most visited, that's Bryce Canyon, but I think it's the one that people most want to visit after Zion. I feel like Bryce gets more visitors than Arches because of it's convenient proximity to Zion. But I still think Arches…

Tower Arch Trail: The Second Best Trail In Arches National Park

Arches National Park is the first national park I ever visited way back in 2015 and it was my favorite for a while because of that. But then I started going to a lot of other parks and it fell lower in my ranking (but still fairly high, not top 5 though) because it was…

Landscape Arch Hike: One Of The Best Hikes In Arches National Park

One of the most iconic arches at Arches National Park, aside from Delicate Arch, is Landscape Arch!  Have you ever read arch more in one sentence?  This is the really long, skinny arch you see on the park maps that you get at the entrance. I had hiked to Landscape Arch on our winter road…

The Best Things To Do In Arches National Park If You Don’t Hike

I know not everyone likes hiking.  Not everyone can hike for one reason or another but you still want to visit the national parks and cross them off your bucket list.  I know not everyone has time to hike when they visit national parks.  So that's why I decided to share a non-hiking drive through…

Delicate Arch Hike: A Must-Do On Any Visit To Arches National Park

For some reason, I insisted on doing the Delicate Arch hike. "It's only, like, three miles I said." "It won't be that bad."  HA!  Good one, me.  Good one. Spoiler alert: It's worse than you think.  Not bad enough to not do it, but go in prepared.  Bring water.  Maybe a snack.  And water. There…
