Canyonlands and Arches

On our 2003 vacation trip we spent a few days in Moab and visited Arches National Park. It was an amazing place and we swore we would come back some day and explore it further. That's what we did this week! We revisited a few favorite spots but mainly chose to hike to previously unexplored sites.

 On our way up to Delicate Arch. Nothing mentioned that we had to walk a ledge!

We also spent a day in Canyonlands National Park. While Arches requires some hiking to achieve the best views, Canyonlands' views are mostly accessible by car.

Tomorrow we head east towards Pennsylvania. I have no idea whether there will be any side trips  between here and there. We're just going to take it a day at a time and see what happens.
