Try to spend a day at Arches, because there are a lot of really nice things to see.  Even if you don’t leave the car, you can still see a lot of beautiful arches.  If you are willing to hike a little, you will see a lot more.  If you are willing to put in a couple of miles here and there, well–you can see Delicate Arch close up.

It had just snowed, and I was one of the first in to the Park that day.  The clouds and lighting were superb, the weather not too cold, and I only had to abort one hike at the northern end of the Park, as the rock was just too icy to be safe enough to continue.

Spent the day viewing arches and then did Courthouse at the end of the day.  No arches but great rock formations!
