Grand Canyon | October 2010

I’m finally getting around to posting photos from our desert Southwest trip we took about a month ago. I had a really hard time narrowing it down from 500 to 15 for this blog post! 

This was taken on an accidental 65-mile detour trying to view Castle Rock. We ended up driving through the La Sal mountain range after taking a wrong turn. (You can see Castle Rock way off in the distance.)


Taken at Dead Horse Point State Park.

At the top of Whale Rock in Canyonlands National Park.

My husband Jerod on a hike in Canyonlands National Park. He likes to get as close as possible to the edge of the cliff.

Whitewater raft trip in Westwater Canyon. (Obviously in the calm part of the river.)

Beautiful view from Red Cliffs Lodge in Moab, UT. Our cabin was about 50 years away from here.

Another view from Red Cliffs Lodge.

Beautiful rock formations in Arches National Park.

The Fiery Furnace section of Arches National Park requires a permit beyond the fence because there are dead-end canyons where you could get lost.

Skyline Arch – half of the middle section fell out only about 60 years ago (very recent in rock formation years).

I think this is the South Window arch.

Unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy while we were at the Grand Canyon, but we did see a beautiful rainbow …

… and a beautiful sunset. What a great way to end our trip!
