Arches National Park

After visiting Mesa Verde we spent the night in Cortez. The next morning we drove back to Arches and spent the day there. We probably hiked a total seven miles and saw stunning scenery almost everywhere we went.

I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

  1. In photo #9, those bushes/trees/seedlings should not be tolerated on or near that arch. Roots are what will bring it down, faster than weathering will.

  2. One of my favorite areas; we spend a lot of time down there. I have been visiting the Moab area since the mid sixties when I was a kid. I have a lot of pictures, some of which are almost identical to several of yours. 🙂

  3. Excellent adventure, Joe! A several of years ago, I did a similar tour, but in a clockwise direction. Dinosaur->Arches->Mesa Verde->Bryce->Zion. We should get together for lunch and compare notes. All of those places are worth revisiting. Sent you a Fb link.

  4. The wife and I visited Arches a couple of years ago. We thought the hike up to Delicate Arch for the setting sun was one of the many great experiences in the park. We did the Ranger led hike through part of the Fiery Furnace, and during a slide your butt along while you brace with your feet, I slid the rear off of an older pair of pants.
