Moab is the closets town to Arches National park located 236 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah and 360 miles southwest of Denver, Colorado.
Arches National Park has the largest concentration of natural stone arches in the world.
A stone arch is a hole in rock that in order to qualify as such must have an opening of at least three feet in one direction.
My favorite rock formation at Arches is Landscape Arch- this amazing thin arch spans longer than a football field in length. This is a natural phenomenon that because of it's precariousness could be lost and crumble at any time. The monkeys really enjoyed this arch and were struck by the thought that they might never be able to take their own children there.
Gorgeous natural sculpture
Another favorite- again due to it's sheer awe factor is Balanced Rock
Moab is a cute touristy town- we ate dinner at a Pizza buffet restaurant called Zax's and had wicked iced coffee at this drive-through coffee 'shack'.
Really stunning part of our country-
Have you ever been to Moab or Arches National Park?
