The Arches National Park, UTAH

Tuesday, May 30th … Day 24 … Green River State Park, Utah – The Arches National Park

Southern Utah Rocks….all over the place! We never know for sure what we are going to do when planning our days, a little research the night before, put our thoughts together and then change everything up when we get there. One piece of advice when visiting these parks is to go early to avoid the heat and the crowds and to drive to the farthest end and start there. We did just that. Arrived at the park by 8am, only a few people there. We were in awe driving the 20 miles through the park this morning, having a few options for hikes in mind, we set out to reach the “Landscape  Arch”, at 290’ it is believed to be the longest natural rock span in the world. Our plans shifted a little from there and continued our hike out to the “Double O” arch. Just as impressive. The trail led us in, out, up, on and around all sorts of structures, a little frightening at times and then you step back and realize just how perfect this place is. Quite amazing! So different then the photos you see because you are there and in it. We had our picnic lunch at the visitors’ center and back at the trailer by 1:30PM. Tomorrow the “Canyon Lands” National Park in Utah …………………
