Arches National Park and Moab

We thought that we had seen the best red rock parks until we came to Arches National Park. We were oohing and aahing all over again. We seldom saw people but one couple asked us to take their picture because it was their 55th wedding anniversary. We took their photo and they took ours at the “Park Avenue” rocks. Park Avenue is named because someone thought the rocks look like tall buildings.

The rocks were named in English according to the imagination of the first white people who saw them. Terry thought that this rock looked like a space ship. We laughed when we thought of someone from outer space looking for intelligent life and finding only the cows. Just outside the Park, you will find open range.

We were in Moab for the yearly vintage car show. Terry took hundreds of pictures. My favorite was this little RV sleeper. Yes, the trailer had room to crawl in and sleep.

We camped at this campground with the Colorado River running through two canyon walls. It was a great place until a sand storm knocked our satellite dish down. The windows were open. The smallest grains of sand that I have ever seen covered everything with grit.
