Inside Fiery Furnace, Arches National Park
Utah

Welcome to the inside of the "Fiery Furnace" area of Arches National Park!

The Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park is a labyrinth of narrow sandstone canyons and fins. The only way most people visit this area is with a ranger let hike. The complex route requires minor scrambling and squeezing through tight spaces. This relatively small area is one of the most incredible and spectacular places in the park and of course it includes a few arches, in this scene you can see a double arch or specatacle arch up high and in the opposite direction to the visitors.


The Fiery Furnace has restrictions on access and requires that you sign up for a ranger guided tour or obtain a special permit. The NPS website for Arhces National Park has more information:

If you look at the map where this image is posted you will see a huge area of tall interesting rock formations.
