So here are the first photos from Arches National Park. We drove down to Moab on Sunday and first thing Monday morning we went out to the Ranger Station. Erin signed up to become a Junior Ranger. In order to earn her ranger badge she had to fill out a booklet and complete a few tasks around the park (like picking up trash and finding animal tracks, etc.). Enjoy!
We dressed for the 74 degree temperature not quite thinking about how cool it would be at the start. Hence the oversized jackets and shorts.
We took the longest hike of the day first thing that morning at the site furthest into the park. That way, as we got tired we'd be closer to the exit and it would be less crowded.
We ruined several pair of socks with the red dirt.
