Road Trip: Arches National Park

The Arches National Park is God's creation at it's best! The landscape of contrasting colors, soaring pinnacles and amazing window arches formations left me in awe.

A little information about Arches National Park:
Location: southeast Utah.
Nearest city: Moab, Utah
Famous for: Delicate Arch

We made our stop at the Visitor Center and pick up some information and get our water filled. It was peak summer, so stertorous hiking trails were not recommended. Thus, we chose to drive along the scenic driveway visiting some of the best viewpoints, and made time for a short hike to view the Delicate Arch.
Delicate Arch Viewpoints trail is a fairly short one which can be done under 30 minutes. By climbing up to the upper viewpoint, you can get a better photo of the arch. Suitable for elderly and family with kids.

Later that day, we found a "spontaneous" Arch appeared by the highway. It was a fun and short hike up. Such a good way to finally call it a day!

A little advice: 
Avoid visiting on holidays/weekends.
Come early morning (sunrise)! Hiking trails in Arches National Park are mostly exposed. If you wish to do one, visit early in the morning to avoid the scorching sun.
Drink lots of water.

Is the big rock for Rose swing in here? I heard people die and they close it. But is that here?
