Arches was the first bucket list item I was able to check off on this road trip. I don’t know why, but I have just always been fascinated by it. Given I had just cried all the way down a mountain the day before, you can imagine how excited I was to see the giant mountain you have to drive up to get into the park after you get through the line at the entrance. I wasn’t going to let a little anxiety stop me, though, so I pressed on. And I was rewarded by some amazing sites. Behold the beauty that is arches!
This is Balanced Rock. Honestly, I thought it would look a little bit more unstable than it does. That rock isn’t going anywhere.
These windows were in my favorite sections of the park. But I will admit to be confused by this:
Uhm, is that a penis? Here is another view:
I don’t recall Penis Rock being on the map. Seriously, am I the only one who sees that?!
Here are a couple more before I call the Arches post a wrap!
