Arches National Park

Wow, Wow, Wow. What a great park. It has a very nice 20 mile drive / tour. Great hiking. With Brennan and Kayla, we hiked the Devils Garden and took the Primitive Loop; challenging 2.1 mile hike. We saw all 7 arches along the trail. The next night, we went back at sunset. Kelly hiked to see the world famous “Delicate Arch” at sunset. A 1-1/2 mile hike literally uphill all the way. He completed the hike in 24 minutes, just in time to see the arch in full sunlight (notice the sun is at the very bottom of the arch. It was gone in minutes.

Added Colorado

Stayed 3 nights at Chatfield State Park; there was a snow storm as we arrived and there was no water. It was a very nice park, and we would stay again when the weather is better. We toughed it out while Kelly worked and then left. Visited with Kayla and Brennan in the evenings.
