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

Black widows are relatively common at #archesnp but it is important to only look and not touch. This spider has a neurotoxin that is one of the most highly toxic of all venoms; pain, vomiting, and nausea manifest quickly. Though few people die from the bite, children and the elderly should be careful! Happy exploring! (mt) Photo: @martytow #spider #usinterior #findyourpark
