21 Cove of Caves in Windows Section of Aches National Park, Utah

Most tourists at Arches stick to defined trails. A few curious people seek out paths less traveled. The Cove of Caves is one such opportunity. Find it by walking beneath the Double Arch or the saddle (space between two hills) to the left of the Double Arch. Think of these caves as future arches in the maternity ward. There are also faint petroglyphs in this area. Several examples of ancient rock carvings have been uncovered in the Moab region. Some of them are attributed to the Paleo-Indians. These nomadic hunter/gatherers traveled through today’s southern Utah over 10,000 years ago at the end of the Ice Age. Their primary prey were now-extinct bison, camels and mammoths.
