When people think of “natural wonders”, they usually think about the famous ones. The Great Reef, the
Grand Canyon, etc. However, there are subtler beauties that go unknown all of the time. Arches National Park and definitely qualify on this. The sights of Dead Horse Point State Park desert and everything were absolutely stunning. Utah

My cousin and I talked about mountains versus ocean.
has just about everything except an ocean but not having an ocean to go to during the summer would make me incredibly restless. She told me that she would miss not being able to hike up a mountain if she left. It’s all about what you grow up with, I suppose. Utah
Anyway, on the way back I gave my little cousins a rock that acted like chalk and I explained to them (at different times, since they weren’t placed in the car together) about what sedimentary rocks were.
It was great, it really was. Even though the drive was long, I really did get to see a lot and truly enjoy myself.
The town near both,
, was especially fun also and it had a lot of cute little shops there (I now have three extra necklaces to add to my collection. I’m about $100 poorer. Yay!). Moab
We’ll be leaving
Utah for soon. I have to say the idea does make me a little sad, but it was good while it lasted. Arizona
