Arches

At the last minute, we decided to skip Monument Valley and drive out to Arches National Park. Afterall, how can we leave Utah without seeing the Arch??

Hiking Trails at Arches National Park:

1. Delicate Arch (Long): This really isn’t a tough hike at all. However, I venture to guess that on a hot day, this could be very difficult since there’s no shade anywhere on the way up! Personally, I would’ve considered this an easy-moderate hike since a good deal of it was flat. Other recommended long hikes: Fiery Furnace, Double Os, Devil’s Garden

2. Moderate Hikes: We actually drove through Park Avenue. I’m not sure what this hike is like on foot, but I’m sure it would be gorgeous in the morning and at sunset.

3. Balanced Rock: See below… you’ve got to see this in person.
