6 Places That Prove Deserts Are The Hottest Natural Wonders

Deserts are vastly under-appreciated for their beauty. Here are some pics to prove it.

1. Arches National Park

These shots come from Arches National Park in Utah.

2. The Sahara

At 3.6 million square miles it’s almost as large as the U.S. It’s the largest non-polar desert.

3. The Gobi Desert Is Also Pretty Cool

The Gobi desert is actually a rain-shadow desert formed because of the Himalayan Mountain Range blocking rain clouds to the area.

4. Canyonlands National Park

Located close to Arches National Park it also boasts the same desert climate as Arches. And it’s all the better for it.

5. The Mars Desert

The only planet in our solar system to have sandy desert-like surfaces.

6. Great Victoria Desert

Located in Australia this desert has a large collection of salt lakes and something called “desert pavement”

Visit a desert sometime! It’s more than just sand!
