Arches National Park

A Most Spectular Day Begins . . .

Moab was our destination after going thru Colorado and we spent the night at a City Market in Moab. A nice quiet place to get a few winks before heading into Arches National Park. The climb up into Arches was steep and we saw so many RVer's like ours. Almost everyone was in an RV of some sort. We passed one long line of about 30 rental units. As we later realized, the Utah park areas are without many hotels so the only way to get around here is by camping.

Entering Arches National Park . . .
How do I pick out just a few photos for this blog? I took so many along the way. One of the first Arches Ntl Park photos was from the entrance overlooking Moab below. This was another scarey rise up and around the narrow curvy road leading to the amazing rock formations ahead. The second photo was on the opposite side of the road where Guy looked up and saw this rock formation teetering above his head.

And Once Here . . .
We saw the Three Gossips, and huge monoliths towering over pools of water from early morning rains. We saw the Ancient Sand Dunes, The Balanced Rock and much more. Each and every turn in the road had us both oohing and aahing.

Our drive would not be complete without showing some of the arches that the park is famous for . . .



And the Rocks

And our landscape changes again as we leave Moab and the Park and drive deeper into Utah. Till next time . . .
