Arches Quick Trip
With Jason's new job, we couldn't take our regular long vacation to Disneyland during the cold and dreary months of January or February. So, to escape the toxic air of our valley and get some much needed family time and sunshine, we took a quick trip to Arches National Park. Neither Jason nor I had been there in the wintertime and we wanted to see it. It did not disappoint.
The hikes (we did all but the 2 longest) were magnificent and the girls were spectacular. We hiked a little over 12 miles in the 2 days we were there and they went without complaint. We bundled up and felt nearly alone as we saw some of the world's most uniquely beautiful landscapes. The snow was an amazing contrast to the red rocks.
