It was extremely windy last night. Jim had to put my top down and latch it. Sandy caught a glimpse of a Heron float on a log on the CO River. It was a quick float as the river is moving fast.
After breakfast off the Arches National Park. We saw so much in a little time. The rock formations are incredible. Sandy and Jim took a couple of hikes. The pictures don't really show what it looks like. This place is definitely a geography miracle. Here are some pictures.
Drove from Grand Junction to the campgrounds just north of Moab. We could see the CO National Monument on the way. It was a bit touch finding a place to camp on 182 but we had success. The site is about 10 steps away from thr CO River with just a small area open to see the river. We are at Hal Canyon site 8. Lots of tall cliffs made of red rock. No bears here buy we wondered about dinosaurs. We got to the site about 12 all day until about 7 people looking for camping sites. It was pretty overcast today and windy at times. Jim started a campfire and then the wind really picked up. Oh, well. Just about 8 PM we saw some great sunset pictures on the canyon walls.
