The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Arches National Park, Utah

Once upon a time, the road into this red-rock kingdom, made famous by the ranger ramblings of Edward Abbey, wasn't paved. It's well-used now, but don't let that deter you from hiking the seven-mile loop from Devil's Garden for close encounters with a dozen arches, including Tunnel, Landscape and Double O. Bonus points: Save time for a ranger-led spin through the slick-rock canyons of Fiery Furnace. Info: (435) 719-2299,
