From Amarillo we drove to Moab, UT to visit Arches National Park. Another long drive. We ran into all kinds of weather, from wind, rain and even snow. This was in New Mexico.
It was 32 degrees there. I don't drink my beer that cold. At any rate, we got to Moab late in the afternoon. I forgot about the time zone changes, so I thought that we would be there later than we did, just by an hour.
The next day we set out for Arches National Park, just four miles from our hotel. Getting that senior National Park Pass was a stroke of genius. Free admission for life. My ancestors would be proud. Arches NP is one of the five national parks in Utah. We've visited two others, Zion and Bryce Canyon. We'll hit the rest next year, maybe. Anyhow, Arches was spectacular. We hiked about eight miles in the park. Not too bad for my knees.
This is the view on the Park Avenue Trail. We hit this trail right after sunrise. Here's a picture of the sunrise.
This was captured on a view point on the main road.
