On our first morning in Utah, we got up early and drove to Canyonlands National Park. The lighting was perfect and the red-rock views were like layers of frozen fire. The weather on our morning hike, (you could film a brain on drugs commercial) was the sultry, meandering path to the devil's lair - hotter with each doomed step. So, the next morning, we got up early again...really early.
I was up anyway - star gazing under Moab's dark skies. Eventually, after a big vacation breakfast, we found ourselves at Arches for sunrise. The lighting wasn't perfect, but the temperature was sublime. I was awestruck.
Park Avenue. The red rock skyscrapers towered over the Park entrance.
Sunrise over Balanced Rock.
Balanced Rock- sunny.
Ants for scale. I mean people
Landscape Arch in the Devil's Garden.
I picked my top 8. If you have some extra time, stop over to see the The Best of Utah!
P.S. I started a brand new travel blog hop this week. (It might take me awhile to learn the linky lingo and tweak my settings.) Do you have travel photos to share? If so, link up here. Please help me get started by spreading the word to fellow travel bloggers.
