We took on some of the stenuous trails at Arches National Park last month.  These involved some scrambling over enormous rocks, balancing on top of very tall ridges, and squeezing through some narrow spots.  It was so much fun!

The rewards for our efforts were that we got to see a lot of the arches which are only visible by hiking to them and we escaped a lot of the other visitors.  It’s a popular park, easy to get to and full of amazing structures so any time of the year there are quite a few visitors.  We were happy that late October had greatly thinned the crowding of summer, but it is still nice to feel you’ve gotten into the wilderness somewhat.

Hiking at Arches was a great warm up for the big Grand Canyon hike we were about to tackle but it was equally awesome in its sights.
