Delicate Arch

We wanted to see what is called the Delicate Arch while in Arches National Park and it turned out to be a pretty hard hike but worth it.

We saw these Indian pictographs on the way to the arch. They aren’t that ancient as they show the Indians riding on horses and they didn’t have horses until the Spanish arrived. Still, it’s a thrill to see them.

Part of the hiking trail. I was amazed to see parent carrying toddlers in those back carriers, young kids whining their way up wanted to be carried by their parents and, once at the top, moms nursing their babies.

A view without any people in it which was hard to get-sort of like trying to get a photo of the pyramid at the Louvre.
