Arches National Park - Located right outside Moab, UT. The park is well known for the sandstone arch formations formed by years of erosion. For photographers, there are "best times of day" for the various arches based on the position of the sun. I would recommend visiting Utah Red Rocks  for anyone that plans on visiting and taking pictures. The pictures below were taken in late May with days being bright and sunny in the morning and clouds building in the afternoon.

Other areas to visit include Dead Horse Point State Park and Canyonlands. The Island in the Sky region of Canyonlands have both the Mesa Arch that is photographed at sunrise and the Green River Overlook that is suppose to offer a great sunset.  A couple hours  from Moab is  the Natural Bridges National Monument.  This park has  magnificent  arches cut by water. To get up close involves hiking to the bottom of the canyon. The lush green in Natural Bridges is a dramatic contrast of the desert at Arches National Park.
