We were on the road before 6:00 AM to drive to Moab, Utah. The sun was rising as we left and it was a windy day.
As Dave drives, I take pictures of the scenery around us! We live in such a beautiful country with such diverse landscapes!
As we got close to Moab, the landscape changed again.
We arrived in Moab around noon and headed directly to our campsite so we could unload the car and head to Arches National Park. We had read online that the park was filling up fast and by early morning they weren’t letting anymore visitors in because they were at capacity. We’re hoping we won’t have to wait to get into the park! Our campground wasn’t far from the park.
We were fortunate that when we got to the park we were able to get right in! Arches National Park is filled with a landscape of contrasting colors. There are over 2,000 natural stone arches, many pinnacles, tall rock fins and giant balanced rocks. The red rock is everywhere and it changes shades with the location of the sun as it reflects off the stone.

We’ve included some highlights from our visit to Arches National Park. This park was worth making time to see. This post continues with A LOT of photos.
Park Avenue was so named because of the sandstone sheer walls that reminded early visitors of buildings lining a big city street!
Queen Nefertiti who was an Egyptian Queen is a sculpted rock formation.
Sheep Rock gets its name because it looks like a sheep.
The Courthouse Towers
The Three Gossips
Parade of Elephants
The narrow path to visit the Sand Dune Arch.
