The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona
Arches NP, Utah 2
We rose early the following morning to continue touring Arches. It’s easy going in the morning, but as more and more cars and tour buses pour in, the trails get crowded and the parking lots full. Still, Arches is such a large park it can accommodate crowds. We zipped through the front of the park to reach the point where we had stopped yesterday.
In these photos you can see snow-capped mountains in the background.
We drove deeper into the park.
And stopped for one of my two favorite hikes in Arches.
After, we continued driving and parking to look around.
Then we took the second of my two favorite hikes.
Finally, it was back out to the parking lot.
Exhausted once again after two long hikes, we drove back out.
Of course, we still pulled over to look at interesting stuff that caught our eye.
Finally, we drove out of the park back into Moab to crash once again at out cottonwood-infested campground site. Fun can be so exhausting.
