Arches, while aptly named with memorable arches to view and walk amongst, is so much more. It is multiple spires, hoodoos if you will, large canyons and seas of rock formations jutting out of the valley floor… and arches.
Arches true colors shine at sunset when the colors turn a brilliant unreal orange-red.
The rock pillars radiate as if they were on fire, taking on an other worldly glow. It makes you stop dead in your feet just to take it in. It comes like a storm, lights up the world, then without pause or hesitation it disappears behind the horizon until it comes back tomorrow.
For me, I’m just happy to be witness to it’s grandeur and share in it’s awesome beauty.
