A few days ago we arrived in Arches National Park in Utah. And I don’t know whether I was entirely ready for the dazzling hiking we were about to do. Our first hike was called the Devil’s Garden and I loved running and jumping and climbing around the rocks. Arches also has the softest sand I’ve ever touched. It was so lovely to sift through my fingers. Apparently since the sandstone is subjected to so much wind and rain and is already, well, sandstone it creates some of the finest sand ever.

Our next hike was called the Fiery Furnace and it was AMAZING!!! We got to forge our own trail through the canyons, arches, caves, and crevices,
and shimmy through cracks, and scramble up rocks, all in pursuit of the skull arch. Boy, there were a lot of opportunities to lose your footing, get lost, turned around, and even out of the Furnace, Which we may have done at least once. anyhow, we had a great time running, jumping, and exploring the seemingly impossible, alien landscape that is Arches National Park.

    Oh, wow–the double arch. That is a really long reach, Reid. Nice storytelling, Liam. What a magical place Arches is.
