April 21, 2012 - Arches National Park, Part 1

Our last visit to Arches National Park was on April 15, 2010.

The highway and visitors center are below.

The La Sal Mountains in the distance.

Someone actually using a camera instead of a phone camera. 

The Three Gossips.

We drove all the way to the end, only stopping to take wildflower photos.  The wildflower photos are on a separate web page.

We had a picnic lunch by the Devils Garden Campground.  Some friends worked this campground in the past.

This chipmunk made it hard to get a photo since it didn't stay still while we were having lunch.

Now the trails.

Our last stop we took the Double O Arch trail and wore ourselves out.  This time we were only going to Pine Tree and Tunnel Arch.

Tunnel Arch.

Pine Tree Arch.

The view through the arch.

We saw a couple good sized lizards by the trail but they were too fast for photos.

Back on the road, next stop The Fiery Furnace.

This is what you see if you don't take the trail that requires a guide or registration.
