On the second day we started out early at The Arches National Park. Then we went into Moab, checked in and had lunch/dinner and
headed for the Dead Horse Point State Park for a view of a horseshoe bend in the Colorado river and then on to Canyonlands National
Park.


These next several pictures are of The Arches NP.







We are on the trail (3 miles round trip) to Delicate Arch. You can see the road and the parking lot
in the upper left. In the foreground are the people below us going up or down the "trail".

Delicate Arch - It might not be obvious but the back of the arch drops straight down and the front drops into a bowl almost straight down







The parking lot from the arch





I have to give Kimberly a lot of credit. There is no way I was going to walk over to the arch
