Let’s just start there.
With apologies to Acadia, GSMNP, and RMNP, Arches might be my favorite National Park (there are also many great ones I haven’t been to). It’s amazing and felt like another planet. There’s so much we haven’t explored yet, and I really want to see it in other seasons as well.
While it was definitely hot visiting in late July, getting out early in the mornings and avoiding the mid-day made the dry heat tolerable. I also shot several nights in the park, which is coming up in the next post.
