Arches National Park – Day 1 – Part


We arrived at Arches between 4:30 and 5:00 pm and for some reason we thought that sunset was going to be around 6:30. Because of that we felt a bit rushed trying to get thru as much of the park as possible before it got too dark to see anything.

Needless to say, we rushed around to see all the sights but didn’t take time to hike to any of the arches or follow many of the trails except the one that got us a little closer to Delicate Arch. When it got to be around 6:30 we realized that it wasn’t anywhere close to sunset. It turned out that the sun didn’t set until about 8 pm. That was good news! We still had more time.


As I look at these photos I realize that we ran the gamut of weather during the short time we were there. Blue skies, then a bit of clouds, darker sky, black sky, rain, rainbows, then it all cleared up again. This last photo below was taken near the end of the day, just before sunset.

This is definitely a place where we would like to return again, since we didn’t have time to really investigate the heart and soul of the park.

So, not much narration on this one. I think the photos speak for themselves in revealing the amazing beauty of Gods’ creation! I hope you enjoy them.
