Arches NP
Arches National Park is situated in the US state of Utah. It's deservedly famous for its natural stone arches - of which there are over two thousand! In this image I eschewed the more clichéd images, and instead chose to photograph a rocky butte.

In the foreground you may notice some snow, surprising for a desert environment - not because it indicates cold as you might first expect because the temperatures can range up to 50° in one day, but because there must have been rainfall. Rain is naturally rather uncommon in deserts :)

For more information about the geology of the area, as well as climate and wildlife data I suggest you visit the excellent Arches National Park website.
