Arches National Park
A portion of the land was set aside in 1929 as Arches National Monument, and then declared a national park in 1971. In Arches, the forces of nature have, over an immense span of time, created a wondrous landscape. Folds and warps lead to graceful spans arching against the sky, enormous rocks balanced on thin spires, standing rock fins, and cliff walls hundreds of feet high.
This is an amazing view. I want to see it with my own eyes!

Sammallahdenmäki is a Bronze age burial site in Lappi municipality and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site (1999). It consists of 33 stone cairns, dating mainly from the Bronze Age (1500-500 B.C.)
The structures were built using granite boulders that were quarried from the cliff face below the crest of the ridge or collected from the site itself.
