Sara and Beans worked from a coffee shop while I went back into Arches for a 6 mile hike from the Devils Garden Trailhead. The first stop was Landscape Arch.
The number of people dwindled as you ventured beyond that major attraction.
I stopped by Partition Arch.
And Navajo Arch.
The primitive trail looping beyond these was quite pretty.
There were mud holes large and small where animals drank.
I stopped by Private Arch.
There were beautiful pillars along the trail.
And a backdrop of La Sal Mountains.
On the drive back, I stopped by a new overlook by the Courthouse Towers.
From Moab, we drove up to Island in the Sky area of Canyonlands National Park. Beans had a nice nap en route.
The canyon views were superb.
We did the short walk up to Upheaval Dome.
We headed to the Green River Overlook for sunset.
It was gorgeous.
