World's Strangest Places

Arches National Park, Utah
Framing the high desert of Canyon Country into surreal tableaux, the pink sandstone formations of Arches National Park resemble bowed sticks of pulled taffy. Of the 2,000 sinewy arches, the most famous are Double O Arch, Landscape Arch, and Delicate Arch, all of which appear ready to snap at any moment.
Where to Stay: Don’t camp beneath those arches! On average one topples every year—plus, with the newly opened 34-suite Amangiri resort near Lake Powell, a luxurious desert oasis is just a few hours away.
