Artists filter the natural world through the lens of their unique perceptions. Landscapes are never just landscapes but a human experience of what is there-as individual as a fingerprint. Nature is the artist here, though. Working in the medium of sandstone, using the twin chisels of water and flowing underground salt, she uplifts, collapses, sculpts, and molds. Landscape is a work-in-progress, a performance art piece that is never finished-and therein lies its very perfection.

The pictures were great and the descriptions were right on target. Almost like being there.
really enjoyed the pictures, all the more I am looking forward to our vaccation there in May.I was looking for a little more details on the Scenic drives, and the sights "in order" of that.BUT the pictures made up for that, I can always read another guide book or ask at the visitors center.
I love this book. We bought it when we went to the park last summer. The arches are incredible to see in person. I love that they have these arches in the book itself. They show the different ones and tell you the names for them as well. They also give you history on the park so you get some background information. I liked that touch because it allowed you to learn before your trip or after depending on when you go.On the last page it gives you other options around the area that you can visit as well. That was a nice touch because if you do not know where else to go visit, this was a great guide as well.
