Arches National Park

So our first National Park we visited on this trip was Arches National Park.
The kids loved the rocks.  This area was the "rock pile" making area.  We made some cool rock towers here.

The kids by balanced rock.

One of the many, jaw-droppingly amazing arches at the park.  Our world is so full of beautiful things.  We are so blessed that the Lord loves us and gave us this beautiful earth!

This is double arch.

While we were there they had the solar eclipse.  The rangers had the special black sun viewing glasses so you could watch the eclipse.  It was really neat.

We did lots of hiking.  

Lots of hiking to see amazing places like Delicate arch

And landscape arch which is the longest arch of its kind in the world.

This is sandstone arch, and it was really completely surrounded by sand--a very fine, red sand that got everywhere, and the kids loved to play in.  I am still shaking out sand from our shoes.

We loved Arches National Park!
