Where to fly
: Salt Lake International Airport (SLC)
Just a simple drive through the orange and red rocks in the state of Utah provides some of the most magnificent views. The next time you find yourself on a road trip out west
, be sure to make a pitstop at Arches National Park in Utah, where, besides compelling hikes with sweeping views of the rugged landscape, you'll score the chance to revel in one of the most spectacular natural wonders
in the entire country: the Delicate Arch
Standing at 52 feet high, the arch is made out of Entrada Sandstone and has remained a beacon of the state of Utah—from the cowboys of the 19th century declaring it a welcoming landmark to Olympic athletes taking part in the torch relay, passing under the arch. To see it for yourself, you'll need to trek three miles uphill. Though take it from us, the view is well worth the effort.
: If you're visiting in the warmer months of the year, be sure to retain the full glory of the surrounding landscape with a stay at Under Canvas Moab
, where upscale safari tents open to reveal stunning views in the middle of Moab.
