Arches National Park

Here I am at Balanced Rock.

Guess what I did last weekend?? I hiked all over Arches National Park! Mama's entire family went down there and it was so fun! There was even a hot tub and the condo, so after our long hikes we got to soak!

On Friday we left really early. It was still cold in Salt Lake City, so I wore long pants and a sweatshirt, but it was so warm down there! I took off my sweatshirt and rolled up my pants and we took a hike to Corona Arch where you even have to climb a ladder, oh man it was fun!

On Saturday we took a really short hike and then a really long hike, the short hike was around Balanced Rock, and then we hiked in Devil's Garden. It was such a long day, but so fun too!

On Sunday we woke up early and I had to help with breakfast duties. We made sweet rolls, hash browns and sausage. My job was to spread the frosting on the the rolls when they came out of the oven. After we cleaned up from breakfast we took another hike in Negro Bill Canyon. It was so pretty, but really cold. Then we went to the Arches National Park Visitors Center and I got my journal stamped!

I love national parks!

This arch is called Wall Arch because it is right in a wall!

Here I am hiking the Balanced Rock trail.

Here I am at the beginning of the Negro Bill Canyon Hike, can you tell it was cold that day?

Oh, and I almost forgot!! On the last day we stopped at a really fun rock shop. Rocks are so neat. I found some neat geodes and some rocks that were bright green!

Cool! I'm so jealous over your rock finds. I love rocks; it's especially neat to find crystals amongst them.
