About 300 million years ago an inland sea covered what is now Arches National Park. The sea evaporated and re-formed more than 29 times, leaving behind salt beds thousands of feet thick. It has a unique knobby black ground cover, which is actually alive—a biological soil crust, composed of algae, lichens, and cyanobacteria (one of Earth’s earliest life forms), providing a secure foundation for the desert plants
