Arches National Park Quarter
The Arches National Park quarter is number 23 in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This park, in the state of Utah, is a red rock wonderland, though the colors you can see there are certainly not limited to red.
The park’s landforms and textures are unlike any others in the world. The unique geological conditions there have created more than 2,000 natural stone arches in many shapes and sizes. They also created hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins (fin-shaped rock formations), and giant “balancing” rocks.
The park was first established as Arches National Monument on April 12, 1929.
