Who else but us, (and lets be honest, about 10,000 other people) would have the bad luck of being in Arches National Park the one weekend in who knows how long when the road to Delicate Arch was closed? That was the one thing we were really planning on doing- seeing Delicate Arch, and all of our hopes and dreams were washed away in a flooded out road.
So we had to make due with Devils Garden, Landscape Arch, Double O Arch, Sandstone Arch, Skyline Arch, Windows, Turret Arch and Double Arches. Turns out there is no shortage of arches in Arches National Park. Missing out on Delicate Arch this time only means that we will be making another trip down there sometime soon. We also discovered a whole bunch of places to add to our List of Things Not to be Missed.
This girl was so brave. The hike up to Double O involved about a half mile scramble over steep, slippery, narrow sandstone with cliffs on both sides. She made it 3/4 of the way up before it got too scary. She was sad she didn't make it the whole way, but she did so good, and found out she was much braver and stronger than she knew she was.
We finished up the night with a lovely Italian dinner. It was delicious and we were even serenaded by bag pipes and Scottish dancers. But. Note to future self. Moab is expensive.
