End of park tour with Arches and Canyonlands NP's 4/23 - 4/26

April 26, 2018  •  5 Comments

This will be my final installment of images and the last blog entry.  I sincerely hope that all those that have been following my adventure have enjoyed it as much as I have.  This has been a trip of a lifetime and I owe it all to my wonderful son, Steve.  Without his help in so many ways, not least being the loan of his truck, this trip would not have ever happened.  Here are several images from Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.  I will label these images with what they are of and where they were taken.

False Kiva Canyonlands NP

Path to False Kiva - a LOT  of climbing but had to have the shot!

Like the eye of the whale and the sunset photos the best. Cool rock formations!

A nice sampling of your shots. The false kiva and eye of the whale stood out for me. Hope you are having an uneventful trip back and enjoying catching up with everyone. Stay safe.

Wow!!! More unbelievable pictures. What an incredible journey you have shared with us. Thanks for taking us along! Safe travels back to VA. See you soon!

I had no idea there where that many arches out there. The way you framed the first one of the North and South Window Arches in Windows area Arches NP it looks like a troll face peeking over the rocks. And the flower one is outstanding because of the fragileness of the plants vs the hardness of the rock. This the only flowering photo I remember. Thanks for the time and effort you put into this project that allowed us to live vicariously with you on your travels! See you soon.
