Arches National Park in January
After spending the Holidays with family in Colorado, we hit the road to return to AIROSMITH and home. Rather than driving directly back to Arizona, we decided to take our time and get in some sight-seeing.
We scheduled a stopover in Moab Utah in order to visit Arches National Park. Perhaps I needed to channel some of my Edward Abbey inclinations.
It’s a short stay, leaving us only a day to drive through the park. We elected to stop at most of the Scenic View Points. A plus to visiting in January is that there are much fewer people visiting. We enjoyed the benefit of visiting during the low season.
The title photo is looking out over the valley from the Courthouse Towers Viewpoint. From left to right you can see the Three Gossips, Sheep Rock, the Tower of Babel, and The Organ. It is a favorite view of mine of this valley.
Another lovely view is down Park Avenue, looking toward the Courthouse Towers.
