I would have benefitted from reading this book before visiting the Arches NP since it names and pictures many of the incredible rock formations and arches we saw during our drive in and out of the Park. However, it is always good to have a great reference for my own photos when I make photobooks later. This beautiful book is well worth reading for the geologic history of the area as well.

The Story Behind The Scenery books are very interesting. They have pictures of whatever park they are about such as Arches: The Story Behind The Scenery. A must read for anyone planning to visit one of our great parks.
