Destination: Moab and Arches

Sego Canyon and Arches

We actually started this family gathering in Green River and stayed in a motel there. It is an hour away from Moab. The first day we hiked to some Native American Rock Art sites in Sego Canyon near Green River. Dinner, of course, was a burger at the famous Ray’s Tavern.

Sego Canyon

Sego Canyon is filled with many types of rock art. On top of a rock are footprints (top left); Grinding stone grooves  in the rock that was once lying flat (top right); Petroglyphs and Pictographs; and a ghost town as well.

The next morning we drove to Moab. Some of the family went  on some trails with ATVs. The rest of us shopped and went sight-seeing, and visited all of the art galleries. In the afternoon we visited Arches National Park.

Top Row L-A small arch in the park; C-Hiking up the solid rock; R-Hiking to Delicate Arch. Bottom Row–Hiking to Delicate Arch–a pretty long hike, but so worth it!. R-Our ballerina daughter-in-law did some poses for me under the arch.

There are several arches to see, and we love to hike, so we trekked  to the farthest, and most famous–Delicate Arch. Everyone in the world should see this national park! Amazing formations, and amazing views!!
