6/30/2013 Sunday – Arches

The sign in the lobby of Far View Lodge said sunrise is at 5:48am, so I set my alarm at 5:30am.

I wake up at the sound of the alarm and stumble out to the balcony hoping to catch a glimpse of glory.

Lo and behold, it was hazy, due to an impending thunderstorm.

I go back to bed. So much for that.

We left Mesa Verde at about 9:30am. The drive to Arches National Park is about 2 1/2 hours. It was early afternoon when we arrived. Another day of 105F+ temperature.

Everything was as beautiful as the postcards. And just as far away because it was too much to walk a 1/2 mile in the heat of the day to get up close.  A normal 80-90 degrees I can handle but I don’t want to get a heat stroke out there in the blazing sun with not a tree in sight for shade.

I highly recommend going to Arches another season of the year. The scenery is incredible.

On to Salt Lake City.
