Moab and the National Parks

An amazing trip through the arches National Park. There are over 2,000 cataloged arches range in size from 3 foot opening to the longest measuring 306 ft. Of course we only saw a very few but none the less a it was amazing to see the double arches, sand dune arch and delicate arch as well as the many rick formations. Three gossips pictured at the left....remind you of anyone??

Double arch. WOW

Canyonlands National Park, Utah's largest National Park
We entered Island in the Sky and were amazed at the vastness of the canyons from the Green and Colorado rivers to the mtns. The vividness of the red rock and depth of the canyon could not be captured on film. THe 100 mile White Rim Road is for experienced mountain bikers to challenge themselves ( no we didn't even give it a thought)

Shafer Canyon Overlook .. A wilderness of rock
Another beautiful overlook. This park was such a surprise,
