Last weekend visitors spotted this beautiful bobcat, one of the park's elusive predators. Though you may not see them, there are several predators like bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, and foxes that live in our travel through the park. (cw, 📷: courtesy Benjamin Sack)

Water determines where plants and animals live, when they reproduce, and what they consume. Observe #archesnationalpark after a rainstorm and you will discover the importance and beauty of water (mt). Photo: @martytow


Stargazing is a great evening pastime at #archesnp but remember you can only enter the park after 7pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Take advantage of the night sky this weekend! (mt) Photo: @martytow
