Arches National Park, Day 1

We arrived at Arches National Park on a Sunday and we knew we had a long drive through the park to our campsite. It was about 18 miles through the park and some of the most spectacular scenery we have ever seen. Our Montana Club friends, Robbie and Alice work at this park during March and April so we were visiting them and seeing this beautiful National treasure at the same time. Like usual, we took soooo many pictures, and there is just too much to put into one blog, so I will do another blog in a few days with more even better pictures. The following pictures are simply ones I took from the truck on our way to our campsite. This drive is called "Robbie and Alice's driveway." Actually, that's what Robbie calls it because it is the most beautiful drive and could you just imagine a driveway like this to come home to everyday? That is exactly what it is like for them for two months of the year, every year. I promise, you will be even more amazed at the photos we took in the days following our arrival.
I decided not to edit these photos, so you will see parts of the truck and most were either shot through our front windshield or out the passenger side window.

This was one of my favorites shot from the truck

Each bend in the road brought us something new and different.

See what I mean!

Aren't these rock formations something.

Lots of arches in this park. Here is one we saw on our way in.

This is our campsite. We have beautiful scenery all around us.

Stay tuned for more pictures of this gorgeous place. There is no way I could do this place justice with one blog entry. This is only a preview, as we were amazed at the enormity of it all. Not shown in any of the pictures, are the royal blue snow-covered mountains against the red rocks, I fell in love with them. They will definately be in my next post. So, check back with us soon. Bye for now.


  1. Feels like coming home to me! We're on our way there right now, to "work" May & June. Glad you enjoyed it! Jackie

  2. Jackie, I should have mentioned it is your driveway during May and June. I'll bet you are looking forward to it. Maybe some year we will visit you there.
