22 The famous Delicate Arch Arches National Park

23 Small one : a natural window

24 A hole is formed by erosion Over thousands of years the hole enlarges, forming a natural bridge Life of an arch / natural bridge (from left to right) The bridge gets too thin and finally collapses Notice two new holes are developing

25 Big one Sand particles are produced by rock erosion Over millions of years, they are piled together by wind into small one This one can swallow you Sand Dunes

26 This dwelling ruin in Mesa Verde is well preserved Did people actually live here? Yes, this land has been home to Native Americans for thousands of years

28 This spectacular view from Angels Landing in Zion is your reward for hiking uphill for 3 hours It does not look all dry and dead from here

29 There are even trees (Checker Board in Zion)

30 There were trees back million of years ago The Petrified Wood is the evidence

38 I am sure you dont mind these little creatures Remember this is the wilderness

39 Trees thrive along riverbanks

40 There must be water under the dry soil

41 Plenty under the leaking roof of this cave

42 So there is water between these rocks
