The Arches National Park quarter is the third of 2014 and the 23rd overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This park is a red rock wonderland. Visitors will discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any others in the world. Arches National Park has more than 2,000 natural stone arches, as well as hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. It was first established as a national site on April 12, 1929 (46 Stat. 2988).
