Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

SO--my advice: unless you don't mind the 107 degree heat, don't go there in Summer.. Also--I despise crowds --and there are always tons and tons of people there in the Summer... We will go back ---but not in Summer...
I do have some wonderful photos to show you from the Arches ---so today will be just one group of them... Hope you enjoy them!!!!! The above picture shows one of the many crazy rocks --just sitting up there... I still don't think I'd want to stand under that thing though... ha (Be sure to enlarge photos for bigger shots.)
The American Indians used this area for thousands of years. The Archaic peoples, and later ancestral Puebloan, Fremont, and Ute peoples, searched the arid desert for food animals, wild plant foods, and stone for tools and weapons.
Can you believe that I've shown you 7 pictures at the ARCHES, and I still haven't shown you an 'arch'????? That will be coming up in a future post....
On another note, have you noticed what Blogger has done for all of us--which is GOOD??? If you click on my first photo, you'll get all of the photos in a slide show... Neat, huh?????
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. We're headed to the Smokies today to see what kind of Fall color is there... I will see you Monday!
