At one point, Arches National Park was inhabited by ancient people, and later by the Anasazi, Fremont and Utes tribes. Forty years ago it was an isolated and seldom visited place -hard to believe, since it is a spectacular park with an astounding 2,000 documented natural arches as well as monoliths and fins, with the Manti-La Sal mountains in the background.
Stopping for photos was essential. Even more amazing was the so-called Windows section, which features several stone arches in close proximity to each other. We climbed about the north and south windows, taking photos and marveling over these giant, eye-like openings in the rock.
