Day Nine

Arches National Park


Before we entered the park we had lunch at a bar/diner. A BLT with french fries.

After dinner at, what I think was Moab, we entered the park.

It was again not very busy at the park, which is great for us, many opportunities for shots witout people in them.

Arches National Park

Last year we didn't venture far from the car, which was kind of nice in the heat, but this year we explored more.

We took some small hikes to arches I didn't see the last time. Among those was the most famous giant arch that I somehow missed last year.

We also went off-road again this time, it's a rental car after all. And we nearly got stuck at some point, but somehow managed to complete the trial.

The views were just as amazing as last year.

We only ventured from the viewpoint for small distances, since it was super hot that day and we couldn't carrry much water (we also only had small bottles), or that's what we told ourselves at least.

You might notice a lack of descriptions today, but I honestly can't remember much. That's why you should always keep a log on the day you did things, people!

After a couple of hours in the park it was time to head to our next destination of this trip: Bryce Canyon!
