Arches National Park, Utah

11 of 13

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.
