Arches National Park is a geological wonderland. Set in the high desert near Moab, Utah. It is home to the largest concentration of red sandstone arches in the world, some 2,000 in all. The national park lies and shifts atop an underground salt bed, which is the main cause of the formation of  fins, pinnacles, spires, balanced rocks and arches. This salt bed was deposited over the Colorado Plateau some 300 million years ago when a sea flooded the region and eventually evaporated. Over millions of years, the salt bed was covered with residue from floods and winds and the oceans that came in intervals. Much of this debris was compressed into rock. The park is near the beautiful Canyonlands National Park.
