Visit to The Arches, Utah

Balanced Rock
I am finally taking time to go back to previous trips where I did not finish posting pictures and blogs.   This set is from our big Western Trip in June of 2011.   We were gone from June 10-28---and on June 23rd,  we visited THE ARCHES near Green River, Utah.

I published one blog post from our day at the Arches...  IF you didn't see this post (or want to re-visit it),  please click HERE.    In that post (October 14, 2011),  I mentioned another upcoming post from The Arches.  WELL---I never did get around to doing that 'upcoming' post UNTIL now.... Hope you still enjoy it!!!!!

Today,  I will share with you more from The Arches ---including some of the actual ARCHES we saw that day...   As I mentioned in the October post,  we visited here toward the end of our trip ---and it was hotter than blue blazes that day....   We hope to go back to The Arches someday when it's not as HOT and when we are not as tired...

Parade of the Elephants
Hope you enjoyed all of the pictures... Those huge rocks and all of the 'designs' are excellent....  I enjoyed seeing all of the different rock designs as much as I did while seeing the arches...

It was fun going back through all of these photos and 're-living' that visit in 2011.  That was special ---and now,  I'm ready to go back there sometime.  It's a gorgeous area ---SO--- go and see it --if you can!!!!

Have a great weekend.  I am going to Georgia to attend a wedding shower for my future daughter-in-law... Should be fun!!!!   Since George is going with me,  we hope to find some time to do some waterfalling and hiking also!!!!!   See you on Monday.
