Arches National Park. It was one of my destinations at my last trip in Utah. But I went to Arizona so hard to visit here at the same trip but today,I can visit here. I was really really glad when Michael suggested me to visit here. He always try to something I want to do. I'm so happy with him.
The enter of Arches N.P is not so gorgeousness,the sign it may loose if you didn't careful to find. The cost of enter is quite cheap as 10$ for 7days. We went to the visitor center at first. I bought a photography book of Arches at visitor center. Seems like it is fascinated me enough already.
We already spent a lot of time at first point called Courthouse Towers. There are some kinds of rocks like we loved the "Three gossips" is looks like 3 women are talking something gossips.
The strange rock came into our view. It's called "Balanced rock",as it has this name it really wonder why it can keep that balance for many years. We walked around that rock,no wonder if it fell down now. These rocks are drive us excited to see next points. We arrived the Windows Section. Any arches are not so close to parking,so we had to walk always. Sometimes the hiking course were not so easy,with wildness or with snow but it also something fun for us. So we arrived at North window after walking some not so good hiking course.
We found a place of campround after that. It's time for a lunch. Michael having some kind of camping stuffs on his truck always,so we got warm water easily and made instant noodles as we bought from center of Moab. It was warm and good sunny day,it good for taking a lunch at out side.
After we had a little late lunch,we went to a very famous arch named Delicate Arch. It taken around 50min from parking by walk. It was a bit wild hiking until arrival there especially last few min,there was a cliff covering snow...and the path being icing as snow trodden hard. It was scary enough. So we had to be careful well. Luckly,Michael keeping sticks for a hiking at his car always so we brought them and it made us safely walking that edge of cliff. Then suddenly,the Delicate Arch appeared our view! It's a quite awesome especially when after hike like little wild mountain.
After left the Delicate Arch,we saw the drawing picture by Utah indian on the wall.
Totally good day!
