I will post just a few of the 300+ pictures we took in Arches Natl Park--it was phenomenal.  We did a little hiking, but mostly just drove to each one of the scenic turnouts and stood in awe.  We left when the visitors' center closed, but came back again the next morning so we could spend a little more time.
Balancing Rock

Dead Horse Point

Delicate Arch

Ken at Windows

Park Avenue

South & North Windows or Spectacles

Three Gossips

Offset Rock--how does it stay up?
This was a great day. We did the Arches and then Dead Horse Point at sunset.

Saturday 4/14 we drove from Moab to Cortez, CO in a snowstorm, so our site-seeing was confined to the Anasizi Heritage Center in Delores.  We spent a couple of hours in the museum and it was fascinating.  I really came away with a sense of reverence for the old ways, and the tremendous connection the current people have with their ancestors and heritage.

  1. Again, great pictures on what looks to be a lovely day! Try to sneak in pictures of both of you too - maybe ask a park ranger to snap a shot next time. Loves to you both! The kids also say "hi"!!
