Brett and I decided we ought to go on a little camping trip before we head to Alaska so...WE DID! I have never been to Arches before, so we decided to go there. IT WAS PACKED! After making friends with Ranger Tim, we were lucky enough to get a camping spot in the park. We hiked around on Saturday until the early afternoon at which point we headed into Moab and checked out the Arts Festival. That evening we made hot dogs for dinner and popcorn for dessert. We then went to a little presentation about venomous animals put on by Ranger Rob. It was really fun! When we got back we watched half of a movie on my laptop (that then died) and went to sleep. We were pooped! The next morning we woke up, hiked a few more trails, and headed home.
We first hiked to Landscape Arch
After Landscape Arch we headed down the trail and quickly came upon what we thought was Double O Arch...
We later came upon the ACTUAL Double O Arch... HAHA!
That same day we hiked to Delicate Arch - which was MUCH larger than I thought it would be. There were crowds of people there. We watched a man propose to his girlfriend under the arch. Pretty fun!
This is a picture of the directions on a garbage can at the beginning of one of the trails. As we sat on the tailgate of the truck and ate lunch, we watched probably ten people try to figure out how to open this garbage can. After trying a few times they would eventually give the can one last strange look and then walk off. We just sat there and laughed! I wish we had it on camera!
FIRE!! I love fire!
Popcorn for dessert!
