About this Item
This special set includes 4 lapel pins: Delicate Arch and Balanced Rock in Arches National Park, Canyonlands Island in the Sky, and the Colorado Riverway.
Delicate Arch - Arches National Park
Water slowly dissolves the cement that binds grains of sandstone together, starting small cavities that eventually erode through stone fins to become arches. There are more than 2,000 stone openings in the park.
Balanced Rock - Arches National Park
Seeming to defy gravity, Balanced Rock is a fine example of differential erosion, where softer rock underneath erodes more slowly because it is protected by the harder capstone.
Island in the Sky District - Canyonlands National Park
Among the shale and sandstone buttes, towers, and basins of Island in the Sky, lives one of Utah's two remaining herds of desert bighorn sheep.
Colorado Riverway - Bureau of Land Management
The Colorado Riverway, one of the West's great river courses, is home ot great blue herons, which are often seen standing in shallow water, patiently awaiting prey.
