Arches National Park in Utah (a five-hour drive from Salt Lake City) is my favorite national park--from both a photographic and outdoor experience point of view.

Arches ranks #1 in my book for several reasons: First, the red/orange rock formations, some in the form of arches, are simply breathtaking. Many jut out of the flat, surrounding ground to form...
