FC: Red Rocks | White Water | and Blue Skies | July, 2011
2: Designated a national park in 1971, Arches contains the world's largest concentration of natural stone arches. The red stone is striking, the air is hot, and the views are spectacular!!
4: Balanced Rock | The balanced rock is about 55 feet tall and weighs as much as 3 school buses. Aren't we strong?!
7: Delicate Arch | Delicate Arch is one of Utah's most famous icons. You see images of it everywhere. But photos do not adequately convey the stunning beauty that hits you as you come over the ridge and see the arch in person for the first time-when you stand under it, the arch towering above your head and slickrock canyons falling away below you. It is a spectacular sight.
8: It isn't all about the arches...
9: ...there are colors and textures everywhere.
12: "A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind." ~de Saint-Exupery
13: "What are men to rocks and mountains?" ~Jane Austen
