Views on the road to Arches National Park

Road to Arches National Park

I have been sifting through some of my older images and thought I would just share some from the journey I took in April when I went to my Aunt Leora’s funeral with a side trip to Arches for 3 days.  I spent an evening shooting around Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

After that I borrowed my wonderful cousin’s car and drove south and east from Salt Lake across through some amazing country to Arches National Park.   Here are some scenes along the road

I drove into Arches at sunset and the rocks were glowing brilliantly red

And the rich dark night was full of stars as I gazed in joy from near Balanced Rock

The next morning brought Mammatus Clouds around my little campsite on a backroad

That morning I wandered on over to Balanced Rock again to catch some cool clouds there

I had fun hiking one morning for sunrise up to the viewpoint overlooking Delicate Arch from farther away

and along that trail were some lovely Indian Paintbrush

Throughout the next few days I wandered somewhat aimlessly led by the light here and there around the park

AND GUESS WHAT I EVEN FOUND LENTICULAR CLOUDS, MY LENNIES FOLLOWED ME!  *GRIN*
