From Colorado we crossed the border into Utah and went straight to the famous Arches National Park. We spent the day exploring the park in the heat, along with families carrying fanny packs, camelbacks of water, and handfuls of whiny kids begging mom to take them back to the hotel pool to swim. We were here on a Saturday in July.
Towards sunset we hiked up to the Delicate Arch and spent the remaining hours of daylight admiring the phenomenal view in every direction. A full moon shone so brightly, that it lit our walk back to the car and cast shadows on the ground. We thought the Delicate Arch was probably overrated and not worth the hike with all the tourists, but it was incredible... definitely one of our highlights of the day.
Today we are packing up to go on a crazy 2-week camping trip! We're going to try and share the trip here on the blog as we go along.
P.S. Who's been to South America? Where would you go if you had a month and had never been before?
