    Stop At: Arches National Park, Arches National Park, Utah

    Our adventure into the astounding Arches begins just before the park's entrance and visitor center. We're about to see stunning natural monuments, unlikely rock formations, and alien, ancient landscapes.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Pass By: Three Penguins, Utah 84532, USA

    As soon as we begin our scenic drive through Arches, we'll see our first formation: the Three Penguins. The ancient Ute and Paiute peoples who once called these lands home didn't see penguins though- they saw ancient spirits watching over the land. As we drive, we leave about the formations and their significance to the tribes.

    Stop At: moab fault overlook, Arches National Park, Moab, UT 84532, USA

    Moab’s Fault is a six million-year-old crack in the earth’s crust. As we continue driving, we'll see this fault and learn about the geologic pressures that have formed the landscape of Arches.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Park Avenue Trail, Arches Scenic Drive, Arches National Park, UT 84532

    Our drive through Arches brings us to the Park Avenue formation - a towering vista of rock carved by the slow erosion of wind and water. Here we'll examine the Four Formations that make up the crust of this landscape and better understand the vast forces at play.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: La Sal Mountains Viewpoint, Moab, UT 84532, USA

    The La Sal Mountains are the second-highest mountain range in Utah. Their highest peak, which you can see toward the center of the range, is almost 13,000 feet tall. We'll pause our drive through Arches to admire the mountains and learn about the Spanish settlers who pushed out the Ute and Paiute tribes.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Pass By: Three Gossips, Utah 84532, USA

    As we continue driving through Arches, we'll pass the iconic Three Gossips formation.

    Pass By: Courthouse Towers Viewpoint, Arches Entrance Road, Moab, UT 84532, USA

    This brings us to another vista point, where we'll see the Organ, Courthouse, Sheep Rock, and more.

    Pass By: Petrified Dunes Viewpoint, Arches Entrance Rd, Moab, UT 84532, USA

    We'll also pass the Petrified Dunes and Great Wall. As we drive, we'll learn more about the Ute and Paiute mythologies of this harsh and alien landscape.

    Stop At: Balanced Rock Trail, Arches Entrance Road, Moab, UT 84532

    Balance Rock is one of the park’s most iconic attractions, and for good reason. It looks like a huge boulder balanced precariously on a thin spindle.... and held together by concrete? Nope - it's all natural, and it's all one single rock.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Double Arch, Arches Entrance Road, Arches National Park, UT 84532

    You've probably already seen Double Arch - from Indiana Jones! Explore this unusual formation as you relive some iconic movie moments

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Pass By: Panorama Point, Utah 84532, USA

    We'll pass Panorama Point — keep this in mind if you plan to return at dark for stargazing. Since there’s very little light pollution obscuring the night sky here, you’ll see an astonishing number of stars once the sun sets. Depending on the time of year, you may even get to see the entire Milky Way! As we continue our drive, we'll learn about how to stargaze like the Paiute.

    Stop At: Delicate Arch, Near Moab, Arches National Park, UT 84532

    Now we're at THE most famous spot in Arches: Delicate Arch. A quick hike brings us right up to this gorgeous - and improbable - formation.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Pass By: Salt Valley Road, Arches National Park, UT 84532

    This is one of the park’s quieter attractions. Like Cache Valley, Salt Valley was formed by the collapse of many sandstone domes. The broken pieces of rock littering the ground are leftovers from that collapse.

    Stop At: Fiery Furnace, Near Moab, Arches National Park, UT 84532

    Our drive continues past the Fiery Furnace: a network of narrow canyons & passages amid towering red cliffs at Arches National Park.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Pass By: Salt Valley, Utah 84532, USA

    This is one of the park’s quieter attractions. Like Cache Valley, Salt Valley was formed by the collapse of many sandstone domes. The broken pieces of rock littering the ground are leftovers from that collapse.

    Pass By: Sand Dune Arch, Arches National Park, UT

    As we drive, exploring more arches, we'll learn more about the Paiute myths behind them, the Spanish and Mormon settlers who tried to survive in this land, and the people who were able to preserve this stunning landscape as a national park.
