The Three Penguins

The Three Penguins

Photo by Ben Prepelka

The Three Penguins, sculpted over time from a weathered sandstone fin, are found near the entrance of Arches National Park. This popular park is just a few miles north of Moab, Utah. The area is loaded with scenic red rock landscapes and Colorado River views. Canyonlands' Island in the Sky is just a few miles from Arches park. The nearby Dead Horse Point State Park features another viewpoint of the Colorado River. The area is made up of Entrada and Navajo sandstone. Over time, erosion has liquified the embedded salt layers found in the rock, and is responsible for the unusual shapes found in the park.
