10 of my favorite photos from Arches National Park

Unfortunately, I only had one day and night to spend in Arches National Park on my road trip across America. This didn’t give me enough time to do everything I wanted, but it DID give me enough time to hike two great trails (in the snow) and return with some amazing photos from Arches National Park. My 10 favorite photos are below:

1. Devils Garden Primitive Loop Hike

The first couple photos from Arches National Park were taken on my way up the Devils Garden Primitive Loop Hike. This was a really fun hike, and although the snow/ice made it a bit difficult, I highly recommend doing this trail if you’re visiting Arches. It is the longest trail in the park (a 7.2-mile loop) and has 7 different arches. If you decide to visit in the winter (like I did), you should look into buying a good pair of hiking shoes (I have these) and maybe some crampons.

The upside to winter? No crowds!

4. Devils Garden Primitive Loop Hike –  Landscape Arch

Landscape Arch is only about 1 mile in, so if you can still plan to see this if you don’t have a lot of time.

After finishing the Devils Garden Trail, we headed to the Windows Loop Trail for sunset (where most of the magic happened):
