~~~ Outdoor Wednesday - Arches National Park in Moab, Utah ~~~



Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is the host of "Outdoor Wednesday". If you are interested in this event....link on the logo picture....and learn about what it is all about. Join the fun.....and visit Susan and all the participants who are sharing "Outdoor Wednesday". You will not be sorry... Thank you Susan!




In 2004 we were fortunate enough to visit Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. We traveled there with our good friends and had a wonderful time visiting inside the area for several days... I have so many pictures of this magnificent park that it was very hard for me to choose which ones to share with you... As you can see I still got carried away... I hope you enjoy them and remember this is just a bit of the beauty this country of ours has to offer. Hope you get to visit here sometime soon.

Welcome to
Arches National Park

Arches National Park preserves over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, like the world-famous Delicate Arch, as well as many other unusual rock formations. In some areas, the forces of nature have exposed millions of years of geologic history. The extraordinary features of the park create a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures that is unlike any other in the world. The arches are beautiful and it is amazing what erosion & time can produce.... ENJOY!












Happy Outdoor Wednesday
Until Later
Hugs And Kisses

Arches! We were there in 2004 and loved it! We have friends there now, or at least near there, serving as campground hosts, and they report daily on their hikes, their activities, and their interactions with campers. They tell a fine story and show good pictures. Yours from your trip add to our fun remembrance of this great park. Thanks for sharing.

I've lived in Utah for the past 4 years but haven't visited this national park yet. Utah has some beautiful places. Did you get to Zion and Bryce too? Most of the national parks here have the beautiful red rock.
I just wish it would warm up a little. We had snow again last night.

Wow Donna, all of those were shaped naturally by the elements? Unbelievably beautiful. I loved the 3 gossips. The little bit of Utah I have seen I totally loved. There's so much unspoiled nature there.

Welcome back girl! How is your back feeling?

Girl I have missed you so!!!! You get to see some of the most beautiful territory...those pics are awesome! Girl sometimes I think me & Bill should get an RV and travel the countryside but then knowing my family they would want to be right up under my armpits in that thing and enjoying their 'free vacation' and I just don't see me winning a big enough lottery for that to happen! lol lol So good to here from you sweetie....have a fabulous week!
