They probably see another seven or eight, but are not aware they are looking at a natural span due to perspective, lighting or surroundings. Of the ones they see, many visitors only experience two or three close at hand.Sounds like a productive visit, until you consider that there are over 2,100 identified arches within the National Park. In fact, you can view 8 from a single parking space. Drive around a bit, and you can view about 20 arches without leaving the comfort of your car. The number doubles if you add in a few short hiking trails -- and the memories will last a lifetime.The purpose of this guidebook is to help the visitor who is looking to experience a bit more of Arches National Park, and gain a deeper appreciation for its fantastic rock features. It starts with a very brief tutorial on these rock formations, provides an overview of arch photography and arch hunting, then gets right into the arches. 45 arches within the park, plus 10 easy-to-reach spans around Moab that are simply spectacular.The Discovery Guide also provides insights on desert travel, desert driving, Colorado River trips, and generally making the most of a trip to Moab.
