Amazing Arches

So it was bound to happen, me crying on this trip. (AGAIN, I mean, Glacier made me cry, too.) But the Delicate Arch at Arches National Park was one of the most beautiful sites I’d ever seen in my life.

Now, as most of you know, I’m not a huge fan of hiking. But I knew this was one we had to do. We packed up a backpack with snacks, full water bottles, and another entire gallon of water. We donned our sunscreen, hats, and glasses, and started on our way.

Part of the emotion of the day might have been reaching the end of 90-100 degree hike straight up hill for a few miles? Who knows but the best part is that once you get up there, everyone waits patiently in line so everyone can get their photo in the arch without anyone else in it. And everyone helps takes pictures of each other! I spoiled this one on my facebook page already but damn, right?

We have so many amazing shots from Arches but I’ve narrowed it down a bit. Things are a bit suggestive in the sandstone…

No matter your preference.

This looks like a painting! So weird! But just my iPhone!

And of course, Harry doing his crazy thing.

And this one doing hers. I have no words for this one.

You can find our little dude in here. It was helpful that he was wearing bright orange on this day!

Arches was a hot, difficult, rewarding, and amazing day. We decided to do the Delicate Arch hike first since it was going to be the toughest on our list for the day. Now, that’s my recommendation every day. Start with the hard thing (eat the frog, if you know that phrase) because otherwise the crew will be too tired. This day was one for the books!

Oh, but did I mention that we are doing ANOTHER park today in the same day?!? That is NOT recommended.

Please chime in!
