Arches National Park

Our last day was spent at Arches National Park. This could easily be my favorite National Park. There are so many interesting rock formations and so many arches all in one area that I find it simply amazing. The first thing that we did when we entered the park was to hike to Sand Dune Arch and then part of the way to Broken Arch. It was a really hot day and we found ourselves not wanting to exhaust ourselves like we had the previous day at Canyonlands.

Our next hike was about a 2 mile hike to Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch and Landscape Arch. This was a really pretty hike and we saw a few lizards (and even touched one of them) and a lot of people. After this hike we sent to a viewpoint of Delicate Arch (we didn't make the hike) and viewpoints in the Windows Section of the Park. After taking our fill of Arches we took off for home.

All in all it was a really good trip. Ada traveled really well. She would get a little fussy in the car at times but other times she would fall asleep just when we wanted her to. The hardest part for her was not having much space to crawl around. She always wants to be on the move. She slept really well on the trip though. She went down every night without a fuss and never got us up before about 7:15. It's nice to be back into the swing of things here at home though.
