Utah’s national parks are seeing a rise in tourists. Last year, Arches National Park hosted over 1.5 million visitors. The trend may be due to the scenic views which have been inspiring artists since its founding in 1929.
Hikers, explorers and artists seem to be drawn to Utah’s national parks. Anthony Lott is no exception. He first started exploring and creating art inspired by southern Utah’s landscapes as a child. Now he serves as the community artist for Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Natural Bridges and Hovenweep National Monuments.
