1st trip
have wanted to visit arches national park for years, since sue and i made a road trip to the north rim, zion and bryce back in 2009
couldn't figure out how to fit all five parks in one trip back then
picked arches and canyonlands for this one
a little crowded but the beauty outweighs that, especially for a one day visit
we benefited by the free entry week celebrating 100 years of national parks
hiked several trails and saw a lot of arches ;)
started with devil's garden, taking in every possible side trip out to dark angel
chose not to return on the primitive loop, as we had more to hike and sue is still recovering from a fall at work that broke her radius in two places and required surgery to install some hardware
made scrambling a little difficult for her
hiking on and over the rock fins was fun, and we were able to get in or under almost every arch
most people stop after landscape arch, so it really wasn't crowded
stopped near sand dune arch for a picnic and walked through the sand to see it
also saw broken arch and skyline arch nearby
drove over to delicate arch and joined the conga line heading up the trail
fun hike, but saw several people who maybe shouldn't have been up there mid-afternoon
we ended up giving out water away to some who needed it more - i don't normally do that, but maybe a once-in-a-lifetime experience to the unprepared?
delicate arch was pretty cool to see, and i even got a photo without anyone else in it
a bus load of schoolkids viewing the arch, but well behaved and one took a photo for us
stopped by the glyphs and cabin on the way down
drove over to the windows section next, and hiked up to the four main arches there
stopped by courthouse butte overlook on the way out of the park for some fantastic views
felt we got a good representation of hikes for one day, and still a few things to see if i ever make it back
had dinner at miguel's, then did some shopping at gearhead's
another visit to moab coffee roasters, staying in moab again

Easy stroll over to Sand Dune Arch. I wasn't that impressed. MJ liked it. Arches are that way. They separate our tastes in nature's sandstone sculptures.

Felt almost like a beach less the sea.
