Sunday, September 8 – We visited Arches National Park today.

Our first stop was the Visitor's Center to watch the informative movie and learn a little about the history of Arches & Canyonland National Parks.

We then drove through the Park and saving future days for hiking. We did some short walks (a mile to a mile and half) out to viewing areas to see some of the arches and beautiful country. This is a very amazing park!

Here are some highlights of the Park.

Just simple beauty.

The next rock formation doesn't have a name. What would you name it?

We didn't drive any further than Wolfe Ranch and Delicate Arch. We will finish the park when we do our Devils Garden Trailhead hike.

We saw this guy rock climbing without any equipment. Must be a tourist for sure.

For being Sunday, the crowds weren't too bad. Of course, getting a picture of one of the arches without a dozen perfect strangers in the shot is impossible. That's why one hikes into the back country. We'll do that in the next several days.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
