Cornona Arch in Winter

Cornona Arch in Winter

  These photos are from a Corona Arch hike my husband and I took last January. It’s just barely cooled down this week and there hasn’t been any hint of snow yet, but I really wanted to post some more timely looking photos of the […]

Arches Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden

Arches Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden

  Hiking in Arches National Park on the trail to Landscape Arch and beyond to Double O Arch and the Primitive Trail in Devil’s Garden. The first part of the trail is very, very obvious and there is a continuous stream of people coming and […]

Bears in the Desert

Bears in the Desert

Sunset in the Desert Silhouette

Sunset in the Desert Silhouette

  These photos were taken on the hike back from photographing Corona Arch at sunset. The same photos featured in last weeks post. I was initially going to post them together but the look and feel was too different. Night hiking can be pretty fun and […]

Cornona, Please!

Cornona, Please!

  Sunset at Corona Arch in Moab, Utah. I have a tendency to complain about where I live. I was born and raised in Moab so I take it for granted. It really is a beautiful place assuming you can claw your way through the crowds […]
