Entering Arches National Park, the first turnoff you come to is Park Avenue. Contrary to the Park’s name, you won’t see arches along the Park Avenue trail. Instead you are surrounded by towering layers of rock formed by millions of years of sediment, erosion and geologic events. Rock that in today’s imagination looks like the head of an ancient pharaoh overseeing the avenue marked by the bloom of a Prince’s Plume at its trailhead.
