Arches Trip!

Arches is especially gorgeous in the spring.
The (daytime) weather was in the 60s- perfect for hiking.

I hiked out to Double O Arch (above), more or less in connection with the OAC students.
A couple of them hiked with me; others went ahead, went exploring, and then we all met up at points en route, like at this overlook for Dark Arch.

It was about a 4 mile round trip plus another 0.5 to 1 miles of side trails to see additional arches.
The rock fins at Devil's Garden and the La Sal Mts were especially beautiful along the way back.

In the evening, heading out, we stopped at Park Ave for some late light photos on the spectacular rock wall.

I never get tired of Arches National Park!
