Arches National Park Local Customs: 5 reviews and 5 photos


A lot of people go to beautiful places to escape the noise and distractions of a busy world and find a little peace and quiet. With a million visitors a year, this is a difficult thing to do at Arches!

We climbed to a nice spot above Lower Delicate Viewpoint one night at sundown to enjoy the scenery before an approaching storm moved in. Minutes later a bus below disgorged a mass of tourists so loud that you could hear them clearly 1/2 mile away and they chattered, shouted and shrieked for the next half an hour. Needless to say the moment was spoiled for us and for others who had come for quiet appreciation of the lovely view. Sadly, this was also not an isolated incident.

So by all means enjoy your time at the park but please, do it softly?
