Ye Ole Park Avenue
We woke up early and grabbed the free breakfast from the motel and checked out. We picked up some water and shot glasses and then drove on over to the Arches National Park. It was a inexpensive price to get in and its good for a week. We bypassed the visitors center and instead drove to the first place to hike around.
Park Avenue was it. It was impresive. You can walk out to this little area or you can hike down the stairs and into this little valley that it creates. We chose the hike. There were this little rock formations someone had made along the way. Pretty neat. The avenue itself was rather large and the rocks were so cool to look at. It was still early and the shadows and the sun were so pretty. We spent more time here than I thought we would so we hopped back into the car and went on to the next point.

Balanced Rock. Its kind of funny. It really is a balancing rock. Its a short short walk to it and you can walk around it. I thought from a certain angle that it looked like a T-Rex. haha. I am a kid at heart really. I took a picture of the niece looking like she was holding it up.
Onwards we traveled until we got to the Arch!! yay! Another short hike about .8 mile. This one you could climb over towards. The neice and I got up in it. The mom didn't get a very good picture of it. You can see us but not the arch. Oh well.
The rest of the park we just drove through. We had a long way to drive home so we wanted to get going.
We drove the rest of the day and made it to Las Vegas around 8 that night.
Since we were in vegas we had to go to a buffet. We went to Circus Circus. It had a buffet open late and it was only arounf $10 per person. The food was alright but the price was right. We went back to the motel and crashed. The next day would be our last traveling.
