We Took a Break!




 We took a break and went to Moab, Utah the jumping off place to see Arches National Park and also Canyonlands National Park.  We had beautiful weather and it was a cool 80 degrees.  I cannot image hiking in the 100 degrees some of these people do.  We each had to drink at least one gallon of water that day!




My kids were like mountain goats going up the mountain.  It is a 3 mile round trip to Delicate Arch and it is straight up a mountain that would be very slippery when wet!  Slick rock that you hike on and if not that it was sand or straight down the other side of the mountain!


 Those are my kids down at the bottom of the famous arch.  The country is so vast and beautiful it is as breath taking as the hike!  This is the  formation that is on the Utah licence plate!
 




















And on every trip we have to take our "Traveling Gnome".  My son's penguin!  This little critter has some miles on him.  We were thinking of even getting his own National Park passport!  Can't leave home without him.  I will be sharing more photos through the week.  But now it is back to work!

  7. I really love these shots, especially of the kids scampering up the rock..my own would have loved that if they'd come here as youngsters! And your travelling companion is a riot! We stayed at Moab too..sweet little town. We didn't get up Delicate Arch, I'm afraid..I was too hot and too tired...will definitely have to go back. So glad you shared these close-up pics...
