arches national park (one)

after the long trip down the day before, and a fitful night's sleep with the wind, we woke up early and headed up to the park for our first morning out. arches has built a beautiful new welcome center in recent years and neither phil nor i had seen it yet-- it was really impressive! the girls loved every part of it and we spent a while checking out the bronze animals outside, as well as some really awesome exhibits inside, and picked up some new books at the bookstore. we knew that with the wind and clouds, we probably wouldn't get out for a long hike, so it was nice to do something entertaining in the morning before we headed into the park and stretched our legs.

  1. Awesome pictures...thanks so much for posting and sharing. Looks like the girls were very enthralled. Sounds like the trip got better and better. Love you all. xoxoxoxoxo

  2. Statues are always so weird for little ones. Glad they took to them.. Nice visitors center. I'm sure you will go back.. Isa has that look of wonder in her face.. Sylvi looks kinda tired from the bumpy night. :) As long as she is with all of you I'm sure she did fine.
    thanks for the great pics :)
