Arches National Park - The Grand Finale

Arches National Park was our last stop before heading east toward home, and it was a spectacular finale.

Our favorite part was getting to climb around IN Double Arch. If you look closely, you can see the tiny dots of people on the right side of the first arch.

David in the opening of the second arch. I tried climbing up too to see what was on the other side, but chickened out. Climbing up wasn't too difficult, it was the return trip that made me nervous.
The famous Delicate Arch. We didn't take the hike right up to it, as the hike to the Upper Viewing location was plenty strenuous for us!
Here we are in front of the Fiery Furnace. Please ignore my dorky chin strap. It was really windy, so it was either wear the strap or chase my hat around.

It was a fabulous vacation and I hated to see it end. After we left Arches, we made tracks east to Denver and then to home. Time to start planning our next trip! Where to, David?

We really enjoyed your blog and pictures. Looks like you had a great trip. You saw a lot more beautiful country than we did after we went our separate ways. We had some beautiful scenery however. Dan & Leila
