After walking through the little goblin village, it was time for us to move onto another area of high fame, Arches and Moab. Coming in from the North, we found a RV park with some space and planned our trek for the next morning up the big hill and into Arches National Park.
The location of arches on the top of a massive, old sandstone hill makes it the perfect place for these formations to, well, form and the whole place provides a really good area for hiking and exploration. Honestly, thought the rocks and arches were really neat and we had an excellent time, I can’t say that anything stood out so much as to just blow my mind.
Still, it sure is a gorgeous place.
Seeing these large arches seemingly appear from out of the blue was quite a sight and made for some really interested hiking. You’d catch a glimpse of sky through the rocks, then as you walked around the rock the gap would move, showing less or more sky as your angle changed. Finally, you’ve come face-to-face with the arch and stare at this geological rarity.
Like everything on this Earth, the arches are still changing. Pictures exist of the arch below before and after a section fell of in the mid-1990s, reminding us that the air, water, and sun all take their time in making these things.
