More arches (oh, my aching arches …)

Arches, arches everywhere ...

This is breathtaking … a reminder of all things amazing! Maybe the Piano Guys will do a video here! Listen to the link while ya’all check the pics.

Yes ... arches ...
Yes … arches …

Many of the old cowboy movies were shot in this area … so it has the feel of an old Western.

Let's go down the trail ...

Anyway, at the end of this hike we are rewarded by Landscape Arch. You can’t go directly underneath this one, as it partially collapsed in 1991. It is believed to be the longest natural rock arch in the world.

There it is in the distance ...

It’s a short trail to reach this arch … and on the way out we can see the La Sal Mountains (Spanish for “salt mountains”), with a snow covering. We’ll be heading up there to see the autumn aspens, hopefully way off the road in the back lakes area.

Too much for mere words.

But for now, it’s dinnertime. In Moab. In Arches. Close to heaven.

From our garden: lettuces, tomatoes, spices. From the store: Blue cheese, Kielbasa
