First Stop, Arches

If you've seen one arch, you've seen them all.

Hey everyone!

I'm checking in McDonald's in Moab, Utah. After a long, long drive I arrived in Moab last night. This morning, I was up before the sun so that I could get to Arches National Park and hike to Delicate Arch as sunrise. I wasn't the only one. There were scores of hikers who made the three-mile hike to see one of Utah's most famous arches at sunrise. After that I headed to Devil's Garden to see the landscape arch and to hike the Double O Arch Primitive Trail. I admit, it was treacherous in places but I made it out unscathed. After that I had lunch and then visited Balanced Rock and a place known as Windows. Finally, I visited the Visitor's Center to buy some magnets and postcards. Next stop, Canyonlands National Park for a two day backcountry hike. Wish me luck!
