Arches Spectacular

On my way down to New Mexico I stopped overnight in Moab.
There was snow on the ground and I thought, aha, that will be beautiful on the formations at Arches!
So I went out early and realized a long-wished for dream:
I watched the sunrise come up and illuminate the Spectacles (also known as North and South Window Arch.)

Nearby Turret Arch was also gorgeous:

Early morning "spotlighting" on Double Arch (before the sky clouded over):

Wow, Charlotte! I'm glad you got up early and went and got these pictures. I wouldn't have been able to get out of bed! :) They are stunning. The early crocodile gets the... gnu? or something.
