Arches National Park 1: Early Morning

Tuesday, September 22

Tuesday was spent at Arches National Park. The only note in my journal is that we saw a desert cottontail very early in the day; everything else is scribbled on the maps of the park.

Notes from our map:

1. View from La Sal Mountains Viewpoint.

  1. I’ve lived in Utah my whole life and haven’t been to Aches yet. It is on my bucket list, and your photos make me want to go even more. Thanks for joining the challenge!
