Arches National Park, Utah

Well I have to start this post with the typical tourist picture from our trip to Arches National Park in Utah.   Delicate Arch is the most well-known arch easily recognizable on many Utah license plates.

Had to take a family shot under the arch.

Nowhere else can you see such a diversity of natural geological formations.

The clouds are unbelievable...all these pictures taken on 1 day.

The camera gets past back and forth between Kristen and I ...never know what you'll get. 

The beautiful scenery surrounding us.

Kristen poses for this shot.

Gorgeous! I loved Arches and so want to go back, only visited for 1.5 days. Good for you, hiking to delicate arch! Must have been a long hot one. :) Nice to have you back!

Oh Diana, I LOVE Arches! It's one of my favorite National Parks, and we've been there three times now and I still can go back (and we certainly will). That photo of Delicate Arch is gorgeous. We hiked up there, too, it was worth every single step. We also camped in Arches on Christmas Day, temperatures were in the lower 20's and the next morning we had ice sheets withIN the tent. But the nightsky was so beautiful. Your pictures definitely brought back beautiful memories.

Wow, what a beautiful place. I've never been out west to any of the national parks. That looks like one to put on my list, and maybe it's not as crowded as others. I love your last photo.
