Moab Adventure Day 3

Having lived in Moab for almost a year and working for the Bureau of Land Management, my cousin was full of great suggestions for my visit. He considered visitor traffic at the national parks and weather to optimize the short amount of time I had to spend in Moab. And I must say, he did a fantastic job!

The first part of Day 3 of my Moab adventure was spent at Arches National Park while the end of the day we visited Canyonlands. Arches was my favorite of the two national parks. We hiked Delicate Arch which was challenging, fun and hot.

While Arches has lots of hiking, Canyonlands is more of a driving and looking experience. It’s absolutely beautiful even if there are so many gnats.

I don’t like getting too close to the edge.
