Arches National Park in Utah

I have been absent from the blogging community for a bit and this is why! My husband and I took a trip to Utah to visit family, friends and two national parks. Since HorseMark Cards blog is about creativity, this post is certainly appropriate and I wanted to share it with you.

These are some images from Arches National Park in Utah. If you enjoy fantastic views of nature, and are up for lots of walking, this is a park you should visit. It was our first visit and we were so amazed at these natural rock structures created by water, wind, and time. (Lots of Time!)

We were so impressed with the Balanced Rock formation. It amazed us how the wind and water carved out this rock structure over time. As you all know, pictures never do justice to many things we see – this is an example. If you ever get a chance, this park is a must see!
(No, that is not us sitting on the side of this Balanced Rock…these are two younger visitors with strong knees! But you can see the scale of how huge this rock is!)

The Landscape Arch is the longest natural rock arch in the world. It spans over 290 feet. You have to see it to believe it!

We also took an easy half-mile trail up to see the Double Arch. Once again, pictures cannot begin to give this formation the justice it deserves!

We also visited the Canyonlands Park in Utah. It reminded us of a smaller, but certainly no less spectacular, Grand Canyon. I hope to share pictures of this wonderful park in a future post.

Well, now that our vacation is over it’s time to get back to work. Cards need to be created and I am well rested to enjoy some time in my creative space.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day and time to enjoy your creativity!

  1. Wow! Those rocks are amazing. Being from Australia I personally love looking at them and from other countries make them even more special. My favorite aussie ones are from Kangaroo Island.

    1. Natural rock formations always intrigue me. I have been to Austrailia once, many years ago, but will check out the Kangaroo Island rocks on the internet. Maybe someday I can see them in person! Enjoy your day and thanks for your comments.

    1. So glad you were able to see this park, it is pretty spectacular. Different parts of our land offer so much variety of wonderful things to see. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comment. Enjoy your creative day! ~ Vickie
