This winding drive through Arches National Park may have you questioning everything you ever knew about Mother Nature, gravity, the surface of Mars and photography. You’ll never be able to capture the beauty of more than 2,000 natural stone arches with ANY Instagram filter, so just enjoy it in real life, and wait for a stop to snap some memories.

As you slowly ascend this desert mesa you’ll be awed as you peer from the windshield. But this is one place that you must explore on foot to see the full picture. The medium: red sandstone. The art: sculptures, arches and boulders. It’s a fascinating, eerie, exhilarating place. With both wide-open vistas and tiny enclosed spaces, this is one byway that you don’t want to bypass.
