Dead Horse Point State Park, UT, Day 3 & Arches

Turret Arch, Arches National Park, UT
Tuesday, June 17, 2014, Dead Horse Point State Park, UT, Day 3 & Arches - 0 miles, 10,706.8 For the Trip

I slept in this morning & didn't get going until around 9:30. The campground is still full; as people leave, someone else moves in. There are a few reserved spots that are still empty; although they are usually filled late in the evening.

I thought about going back to Canyonlands, but decided to do Arches National Park instead. I almost skipped it this trip since Ive been there many times. Still, many wonderful formations as well as arches. I planned to do some of the arches at the Devil's Garden that I missed the last trip, however they are repaving the area, and the entire section beyond Sand Dunes Arch parking lot is closed. They do let campers through if there are openings at the campground, but, as usual, it is full.

The closing temporarily removed 150 parking spots from the park & it was easy to see they were missed - all the lots had rangers directing traffic & to help find spots to park when available, and chase people off when there weren't.

So, some photos of arches and formations that I've done before, but great to see again. The last image is the Colorado River just outside Moab. Speaking of Moab, I finally bought the Navajo Flute I've been seeking for the last two trips. Now all I need to do is learn to play it!  More photos are at today's LakeshoreImages page.

It is very windy; too windy to cook outside, so dinner was a couple of tuna fish sandwiches & chips with bing cherries for desert.

Until Tomorrow -
