Our entrance pass to Arches National Park was yesterday, during another beautiful sunny day in Utah. It is a very busy and popular park, and this was the first National Park we have been to that required timed-entrance tickets to limit the influx of vehicles. This was in addition to the 2022 National Parks Pass we have been using.
When we departed the park at the end of the day, we were both in a state of “scenery overload.” I cannot think of a better way to describe the sensation. Seeing these vistas originally as background to many western movies (as a kid), many of them in black & white, did not prepare me for being there in person. I won’t say much more in this post; I will just let the photos we took speak for us. Just understand that like the old western movies, these photos are very limited images of the true scenery and vivid colors that we enjoyed. These photos will be part of my computer wallpaper forever.
What an amazing place this was to visit. We will depart tomorrow for Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks.
