|Arches is spectacular at any time of day, but especially at sunrise and sunset when the sun is low in the sky and illuminates the Arches sandstone in radiant yellows and oranges.|
Visiting late in the afternoon or evening is an excellent time to see Arches. Temperatures are cooler, the lighting is better for photography, and you'll avoid the crowds.
You can take a relaxing walk around Balanced Rock or The Windows to watch the sunset. Then stay after dark to enjoy the spectacular night skies of Arches National Park.
