Longest Arches in the World


#1 Landscape Arch 290 ft. long

While in Salt Lake, at my favorite doughnut shop, I picked up the local paper. Normally I don't read the paper, but a headline caught my eye. The Salt Lake Tribune had a fabulous article about Utah being recognized for having 6 out of the top 10 longest naturally created arches in the world. All 6 arches can be found in southern Utah a mere 4 1/2 hours from my house!

#2 Kolob Arch 287 ft. long


#6 Rainbow Bridge 234 ft. long

With all my big plans for the summer, I am totally adding a few of these ARCHES to my list of rockin' outdoor summer trips! What nationally (or worldy) recongized attractions do you have by you?

My Brother-in-law went to a few of those in the fall and said they were awesome.
