Arches national Park: Rocks with Familiar Shapes
This travel souvenir from the United States might look a bit alien, but in fact it is talking about plain nature. Pine Tree Arch is one of the arches scattered across Arches National Park. This park is a feast for the eyes as these sandstone formations have been produced by nature thanks to erosion happening over millions of years. The park features an eclectic number of arches that take different shapes that will certainly impress the traveler. Here, you'll find familiar shapes such as a courthouse, a strange garden and angel, and you'll be right as the rocks resemble just that. It is no wonder that arches are named Courthouse Towers, Devil's Garden, Fiery Furnace and Dark Angel.
An Amazing Fauna and Flora in the Arches
If traveling with the family, kids will be amazed at the strange shapes and will probably want to know more about them. Your best bet is to join one of the guided tours that rangers provide to all visitors. The park is a great spot to set up a tent and you should ask at the Visitor Center the places where camping is allowed. If you are a nature lover, the park won't disappoint you as it is home to a varied collection of fauna and flora species. Be prepared to come across mountain lions, red foxes, rattlesnakes, kangaroo rats and antelope squirrels. If you are a plant fan, you will marvel at the wide variety of cacti and many other plants including yucca, Mormon tea, evening primrose, sand verbena and Utah juniper. All in all, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
