From Arches to Aspen, Day Six

Tabblo: From Arches to Aspen:  Day Six

Day Six we left Cortez to go to The Arches National Park in Utah.  As we drove, the terrain changed yet again to flat, dusty fields, and then red sandy rock.

We came to a huge Totoro-shaped blob first, but could not climb it because it was fenced off (though Ben was willing to try).  Then we came to an arch that was just perfect to climb, but I got freaked by the height.

Arches was stunning, Mars-like, bizarre, beautiful, and beastly hot.  Still, we saw quite a bit of it, by car and by foot. 

Drove another three hours to Aspen.  Tomorrow is the last full day.

Wow, those are big rocks!

Love the arches and the sunflower field. Gorgeous!!

Reminded me of Sedona, Arizona, with all that rock, just not as blood red. 🙂
