National Park Week: Arches National Park

Mountain Dad and I have visited approximately fifteen National Parks and Monuments over the eight years of our marriage. That’s about two each year, but we’d love to visit more. This week, we want to share our love of the outdoors with you in a very special way, since this is National Park Week. In honor of this special week, I will be posting a photo from various National Parks every day, Sunday April 21, 2013 to Saturday April 27, 2013. I hope you enjoy these beautiful images, and don’t forget to visit your local National Park as well!

I’d like to start things off right with a photo of Delicate Arch in Utah’s Arches National Park. This iconic arch can be seen on state liscence plates, but might I suggest you see it in person instead? Arches is a beautiful, barren area near Moab, Utah with hundreds of red rock arches to enjoy.  I particularly liked seeing this arch at sunset, because the colors of the the setting sun illuminate the red with golden light. Enjoy!
