David adds value to your experience while visiting and viewing the natural wonders and scenery of the park. David shares pictures of rocks that look like faces, creatures, monsters, cartoons, birds, fish, animals, aliens, muppets, action heroes, dinosaurs, and other familiar things. David names the rock formations that you may find humorously accurate. The rock pareidolia in the park is interesting and amusing. Many people know that Arches National Park has the largest concentration of significant natural arches in the world, but they do not know the park also has a high concentration of rock pareidolia. Many of the rocks David named because they look like someone or something familiar to him. You may see them differently. Viewpoints, angles, lighting, shadows and our imaginations can often change what we see. However we see it, the illusions are just delusions to both of us! The images in the rock formations are called, "pareidolia." Pareidolia is the illusion or perception of images, patterns or associations based on the rocks' composition, makeup and form (rocks looking like familiar things). When we see pareidolia, we often emphasize details that fit our image or de-emphasize details that do not. Sometimes we connect the dots or fill in the blanks to make our images more prominent. David names the rock formations to help place the images in your brain. Without the names, you would think that you are only looking at rocks! Arches Pareidolia: Faces & Creators in the Rock can be used as a guide book. The pictures of rock pareidolia are in order and along designated roads and trails in Arches National Park. It is up to you to try to find them. Please stay on the trails and respect the quiet sculptured beauty of the area. Arches is a special place to get a nature fix or therapy for your soul. It is an amazing treasure. Good luck with your rock pareidolia hunt.
