Free Outdoor Adventure Days Plus Delicate Arch Featured On A US Coin

Delicate Arch
Delicate Arch, in Arches National Park, is one of Utah's most recognizable landmarks. Now it is being featured on a coin as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. The Deseret News has this article about the selection. Below is an excerpt.

Officials from the United States Mint and the National Park Service will gather Friday for the official launch. Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and Moab Mayor Dave Sakrison are expected to attend, as well as members of the public. Those in attendance can trade their cash for $10 rolls of the new quarter.

White said those who want Arches National Park quarters can find them in circulation or buy them from the Mint website in bags, rolls or in the annual uncirculated proof sets.

Free Admission! • Salt Lake City • June 13–14, 2014

This year's Outdoor Adventure Days is located at the Lee Kay Center at 6000 West, 2100 South in Salt Lake City. The turnoff to the Lee Kay Center is just north of the interchange on 5600 West.

Hours will be from noon until 7 p.m. on Friday, June 13. Hours on Saturday, June 14 will run from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

What gets your adrenaline pumping? Maybe it’s the speed of a brisk ATV ride, or shooting a target with perfect precision. Perhaps the familiar tug of a hooked fish, or coming face to face with live birds of prey. The first annual Outdoor Adventure Days is totally free, so bring the whole family!
