While we came to Moab mainly for the Jeeping opportunities, Moab also sits just outside of both Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.
We watched the weather for an agreeable forecast and ended up with a perfect day to visit the Arches - the closer of the two. The temps were in the mid 70s, sunny and with just enough clouds to make the pictures look pretty.
We watched another park movie wherein theories are presented as fact, lunched with a view of the La Sal mountains, drove through a good share of the park, marveled at how people will tailgate horribly even when you are doing the speed limit in such a scenic area, did some mild hiking, waited in lines for pit toilets (the park seems under configured for high traffic in this respect), marveled at the scale of the rock formations, took lots of photos, and Miranda earned another Junior Ranger badge.
We didn’t explore every nook and cranny but rather left lots to see on a future visit.
