Our next stop was the Garden of Eden.
Our Next Destination Is Delicate Arch
While the name may not be familiar, most people will recognize
Delicate Arch as the “trademark” signature of the park.
Continuing north on the park road, we enter Salt Valley
Our next stop will be Sand Dune Arch. It is an easy hike from the road.
TIME TO TURN AROUND
We’ve reached the north end of the Arches NP road.
Time to turn around and head south for a recap of today’s sights.
Well, it’s been an exciting day at Arches National Park, but we still have over 120 miles
to go to the hotel in Grand Junction, Colorado. The scenery isn’t over yet, though!
Thanks for joining us today exploring Arches National Park.
We hope you can join us tomorrow as we drive across Colorado and explore Rocky Mountain National Park.
We are also stopping in Loveland CO tomorrow to visit relatives.
