>Arches National Park

>I knew that we wouldn’t have time to spend a full day in Moab as we drove back from Santa Fe. The timing ended up working perfectly however because we left Santa Fe early enough on Wednesday to get into the park by 330 or so and spent a few hours there. We were able to do a small hike (boy was it hot!) and see quite a bit of the park. We saw Balanced Rock, Landscape Arch, Tunnel Arch, and Delicate Arch.
By then, it was time to call it a day and we got dinner in Moab. On Thursday morning we got up early and hit a few of the sights we had missed from Wednesday. Hiking around was much better because it was a good 20 degrees cooler than the evening before. We saw Turret arch, Double arch, and two called the North and South Windows.
Noah is the best at spotting wildlife, and it was no exception while we were at Arches. In addition to the normal lizards and deer that can be found around there, he’d been talking about wanting to find a scorpion all week, and finally, he did!

  1. >More great photos. I like the one of Noah and you and your pregnant silhouette against the amazing scenery. I have been in Moab only once before and it is so beautiful there. We'll have to go together sometime. Enjoy your trip. Talk to you when you get home.
