Arches National Park, Moab, Utah

We love Moab! Other than getting the photos, I love to bike there. We did a Skinny Tire race there a couple of times. One year, I made the 30 miles up to Dead Horse Point from town probably averaging 6mph when I saw Steve zooming down the hill, passing me at 25 mph. He is a beast on the bike. I enjoy riding but was never very fast, even in my triathlon days. Swimming was my better event. Here are some random shots from Arches. If you are interested in a print, please let me know.

After driving past the visitor’s center, you come to Park Avenue on the left. It is an easy walk on a paved path to this view.

Pine Tree Arch

Skull Arch in the Fiery Furnace – a favorite of mine

Steve and I in front of Partition Arch in 2011. It is a bit of a hike to get to this point. Well, it was then. We were not used to hiking and scrambling.

Sometimes the trail has water along the way to Delicate Arch.

Canyoneering at Park Avenue. This formation looked to me like the formation in the movie A Night at the Museum. It looks like it is getting ready to talk.

And these two chatty ravens were talking just over my head.

We stopped at the Double Arch on bright afternoon. I took some shots while Steve went for a walk. I came home to find Steve in one of the photos. He makes it more interesting.

A view from one of the Canyoneering Trips. See the carabiners on the right and the drop? Yes, I went down that drop, me with my fear of heights.
