Seven Weeks Across America
It was hot, hot, hot during our time at Arches National Park. Those temps were breaking 100 degrees, so we kept our hiking to the mornings. We did two hikes - the one to Delicate Arch being the most well-known. I was very proud of our peanut for making it. It was not an easy hike, and even in the morning it was still hot. But it was so worth it. It was magnificent to see in person, particularly because it was surrounded by a huge natural amphitheater. Despite the dozens of people who were sharing the space, there was plenty of room to take a seat and soak it all in.
Our other hike took us to Landscape, Navajo, and Double O arches. I would highly recommend this hike - it was truly fun to scramble over boulders, walk on top of fin rock formations and clamber up and through some arches.
There are so many arches to see, you sort of have to pick and choose what you spend your time visiting. I particularly enjoyed Double Arch. You really have to walk down the path to appreciate how very cool it is.
