When we stay in an area for awhile I start thinking of places I would like to return to. Once after leaving the USAF Academy at Colorado springs near Denver. We crossed the mountains to take in the Arches. We drove over the beautiful high mountains and headed down thru some even more beautiful country. Vail is nice and I know it must be beautiful in the winter, but we are not going to see that. I prefer the GREEN SKI slopes.
Once out of the mountains and thru this ROCK canyon is one beautiful drive.
As you see here the Interstate is two levels
Looking back, the mountains are spectacular.
Then after the UTAH state line we spy the Welcome to MOAB sign.
These formations are so huge and striking you stand in AWE and wonder how they were formed?
The formations are immense. All of them are about the height of the Huge Sheep below, it is 440 ft. tall. (That is about 44 stories in building size).
Below we are sitting in one of the many arches.
The one below is called the Cowboy chaps, the Cowboy was pretty bow legged!
Places like this stick out in your minds. the folks at the park were courteous and very helpful, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.
Thanks for traveling back with us. Oddly this is filed about desert type land, from WET Melbourne, FL.
TWO of those, “How in the world did this happen?”
A couple beautiful Packard’s from Louis out on the other coast..
