Arches National Park in Winter: Driving in the Snow

I was pretty lucky on this day. I had just arrived in Moab the night before. The forecast called for snow — but only from about 5 to 8 a.m. So, I got up before dawn and drove into Arches National Park, where it was pouring the snow! The forecast was right — it didn’t last long, and by midday the roads were clear, but there were still some nice accents of snow on those red rocks.

This video shows my entire day of driving, and a timelapse at Devil’s Garden when the weather started to clear. I hope you enjoy it! and provide driving videos and stories to help you plan your trip.

I made this trip in January 2018. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras – one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).
