A Tree Grows In…Utah

Arches National Park Utah

Somewhere among the approximately two thousand sandstone arches that compose Arches National Park in Grand County, Utah, sits a tree. While remarkable enough in its own right – the park grounds sit atop a salt bed, which isn’t exactly what you’d consider to be conducuve to flourishing fauna – the tree provides a sharp contrast to its massive surroundings. As a result of the salt, not trees but arches abound in the region, leading approximately 700,000 visitors to the area each year.
