Arches, Canyons, Moab!

After our brief stay in the wilderness, we headed west to Moab, Utah.
Moab is quite beautiful, but amazingly hot in August. go figure.
Aside from sweating a great deal, we also visited Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. If you've never been to the Grand Canyon, a small version of it is Canyonlands, I believe this to be a fair comparison. To be honest, several hundred vacationing Europeans and I enjoyed Arches more than Canyonlands. Arches NP is sort of an unbelievable bit of science and wind created landscape. Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Mesa Arch (Canyonlands)

Dead Horse Point (just outside of Canyonlands)

Delicate Arch (52-ft tall)

Landscape Arch (as long as a football field)

Double Arch
