An adventure of my life time!

Arches National Park is one of my favorite NP. I have been there a number of times, yet I love it so much that I don’t mind being there, again and again.

Although the longest trail is only 7.2 miles, there are a number of them. If you hike every single one of them like I did, it’ll still take you a couple of days. Can you imagine that there are more than 2000 arches in the park? Simply amazing! Every time I saw those astonishing arches, I couldn’t help but marveling the splendor of Mother Nature. So fortunate to witness such a beauty!

PS. the only “drawback” of the area (Moab) is it’s very expensive to stay. Even Motel 6 costs $90. I stayed in a hostel (Lazy Lizard). With a private room, it costs $28 (share bathroom and showers).

  1. At this place, your red jacket makes you blend in, instead of stand out! : )

    (p.s. I love the recurring theme of the red jacket)

    • You are not the first one commented about my red jacket. I have got a blue jacket, but somehow, I love my red one much better. 🙂 As you can tell, I love red–red rocks and red jacket. 🙂

    It seems there are not many people on the Dedicated arch. Good luck of you.

    • It was a cold day. I was there relative early. On my way back, there were a lot of people coming. It won’t be fun to have that many people there. I love the solitude. 🙂
