Arches National Park

For Jimmy's big 3-0, we took a trip to Moab. We saw Arches National Park and Canyonlands. That is SUCH a cool place. I cannot believe it's been basically in my backyard for 16+ years and I have never seen it!
Just look at the beautiful Red Rock on the way IN.
This looks like a fish tank decoration to me!
Double cool was this hike?!
This is on the path to the delicate arch. I LOVED the Petroglyphs.
And FINALLY, here it is: Delicate Arch. I have been looking at this thing on my license plate for 10 years! (Or so...) The hike was gruelling, only because we had a half of a 20 oz. bottle of water and it was 95 degrees.
Which is actually bearable weather for the area....
If anyone lives near enough to see this gorgeous park, DO IT! Take the hikes! Stay in Moab, there is a TON to do.
Enough pictures...I don't want to spoil it for you!


This is the coolest dog ever!
