unbelievable - arches national park


worth the 8+hrs of driving, arches national park is the most amazing place i've ever been to in utah. the hikes were relatively easy and the views were completely breath taking. we only had one day, but we fit in 3 different trails, a lunch time side trip to moab and so many photo ops that both our cameras and my flipcam ran out of battery.
***this post is very picture heavy***

the drive into the park

balanced rock

on the trail to delicate arch... it was so windy

bundled up against the wind and looking out for cactus!

on top of the world on the edge of the trail, just around the bend from the arch

the delicate arch
basically the symbol of utah. absolutely amazing.

that tiny figure is me standing in the arch, so cool. right on the edge of the cliff

one of the peaks in the massive national park, doesn't it look like lion?

on the trail to landscape arch, the 2nd most popular hike in the park

Cindy said...

mish - the jacket is prob. 5 yrs old, but h&m usually does similar ones every fall. mine is a size 6.

It's just gorgeous!! and these picture totally communicate its beauty! and could you and your mom be ANY CUTER?!!! oh my gosh!! + you have the same smile :)

ok and thanks so much for your email w/ the portugal tips! LOVE that you mention the boat tour: I have it down in my notes to do!! glad you approve of it! one question, is the smaller boat gonna make me sea sick? I didn't think i was sensitive to motion sickness but in australia i was on a boat that wasn't even that small, but not massive either, and i was soooooooooooooooooo sea sick, i thought i was going to hurl on board! worst feeling. ever.

Cant wait for Lagos!! omgosh!! and is there anything amazing i should check out in Lisbon? Were you saying you had never been there? i dont remember right now.

Hope it's sunny + warm in TO. it sure is here!

omg and one last thing, can we maybe plan an Ontario cottage weekend?! I wonder how much it would be to do that and i would SRSLY LOVE TO!!
