Arches National Park, Moab, UT


About the only thing I can say for this is WOW! You won’t see scenery like this anywhere else in the world.  While not a large park, it is filled with interesting and unique landscapes and features. There are numerous easy and moderate hikes to the various terrain features, with most viewable from the roadway.

We took a lot of the hikes, until we ran out of steam. Although we walk 3-4 miles daily, its on level sidewalks and a mile lower elevation than at Arches, so we got pooped before we saw it all. But we may go back day after tomorrow, will just have to see how Canyon Lands goes.

This is a shot of Landscape Arch in the background. Easy walk in, they were in the process of improving the trail as we walked in.  There are also a few more side trips to other arches, but we were losing steam by this point.

Day 2.. we had to go back and finish what we didn’t catch the first day.  This is all of the Windows area of the park.
