Arches National Park, while not necessarily a wilderness, is an amazing place. A true geological wonder of the world, Arches National Park near Moab, Utah contains over 2,000 arches in its 76,359 acres. Ancient layers of rocks sculpted for eons by wind, water and ice have created not only arches, but rock fins, towers, pinnacles, balancing rocks and even a petrified sand dune complex.
