A Last Glance at Arches NP

Considering how spectacular Arches National Park is, it’s clear we’ve never spent the time there that it really deserves, even though we saw more on this trip that we’ve ever seen before. For instance, I don’t think we had ever seen Wolfe Ranch; I’m sure I would have remembered if I’d been there before.

This is actually the second house on the ranch; this was the first one.

Apparently it isn’t only the trees that persevered.

If we had had more time, we would probably have walked to Delicate Arch, one of the most photographed arches in the Park. Instead, we drove up the road to a scenic turnout

and used my 100-400mm lens to get this shot of Delicate Arch.

On our way out we stopped and took a short hike to this rock formation

where we were surprised to by long, narrow passages through the rocks.

The most popular activity in the park, at least when we were there, was obviously biking, but I suspect the activities are only limited by your imagination,

though I would never, ever dream of doing this kind of adventure.
