Western Road Trip, Day 8

We spent most of Day 8 of our roadtrip across the southwest at Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. Here’s look at a few of the sights we saw at the Windows Section of the park. Some of the short hikes in the Windows Section include Balanced Rock, Garden of Eden, Double Arch, Turret Arch, and Cove Arch.

Here’s a time lapse ride through Arches National Park. It starts at the Skyline Arch at the northern end of the parks paved road and heads down through the park to the entrance/visitor’s center. The second part of the drive starts in downtown Moab Utah and heads to the visitor’s center in the Islands in the Sky district of the park.

Western Road Trip, Day 7 – Flagstaff, AZ to Moab, UT

Day 7 of our road trip through the southeastern USA took us on the most scenic roads in America from Flagstaff, Arizona to Moab, Utah. Most of the drive was on US Route 160 in Arizona (Navajo Nation land) and US Route 191 in Utah. This was by far the most beautiful drive of our entire 2 week trip and took us through Monument Valley and the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.
