Arches National Park: Rocks with Familiar Names
This travel souvenir from the United States can help attach meaning to a particular landscape that might seem strange to us. The Double Arch is located in the Arches National Park and it is only one of the more than two thousand rock formations that give identity to this site. Each arch has a name that in a way alludes to its shape. Thus, there is the Courthouse Towers, the Delicate Arch, Devil's Garden, Fiery Furnace, and Landscape Arch among many others. These arches are a consequence of millions years of work by nature.
Animals and Plants in the Arches
Families will be delighted to hike in the park, which is the only way to get to know all its features. The best way to know better about the arches is to join a guided tour that ranges organize for all visitors. You can also read about the park in the books that can be purchased at the Visitor Center. This park is also a paradise for nature lovers who like to see animal and plant species in their natural environment. It is no wonder, as the park is home to red foxes, antelope squirrels, rattlesnakes, red foxes, mountain lions, kangaroo rats and mule deers among many other animals. Those interested in the typical flora of the region, won't be disappointed as the park houses many species such as yucca, cactus, Mormon tea and pinyon pine. Camping is not a problem because the park has reserved areas where you can set up your tent. In fact, it is a great idea as it will give you the chance to be close to nature and see its variations over the day and the night. By all means this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
