This morning we’re packing in the campsite at Zion and hitting the road for Arches National Park!
It’s about a 340 mile, 5 1/2 hour drive!
Fortunately the state of Utah understands…
The land flattens out a bit once we’re clear of the park.
Until we start our climb into the mountains and Fishlake National Forest
We’ve been pretty good about sticking to sandwiches and avoiding fast food.
This time we can’t resist a couple tacos…
She says she can eat and drive…
Well, lesson learned… tacos and driving don’t mix!!
Before we know it, taco… is… everywhere!
Continuing into the mountains, the weather worsens.
Time to put the tacos away and focus on the road!
Soon we’re bombarded with falling snow! 🌨 🌨 🌨
Descending the mountains, the snow fades to rain, and the rain thins with the clouds.
The break in the storm opens up to some interesting rock formations.
This one looks like a sinking battleship!
The size of this rocks which surround us is just amazing
The wind is equally amazing, and people leave their cars to feel it’s power… we can feel it’s power quite enough from within the van! 💨 🚐
Arrival In The Rain
We’ve been very fortunate with all the good weather on this trip, slightly warmer than average temperature and no precipitation.
Arriving at Arches makes us slightly nervous.
As we pull into the park, rain continues to sprinkle our windshield.
We’ve made it to the park; lets see which direction this weather goes!
