Man, when I look at these pictures, it makes me think of that song, "I see skies of blue . . . clouds of white, Bright blessed days. . . dark sacred nights, And I think to myself what a wonderful world." We have GOT to get back to Arches again. It is so amazing! This was two years ago. I can't believe that, but then I look at my kids in these pictures, and yeah, it was that long ago.
It was a warm Spring day and we were happy to find a shady spot
Britt tried to climb up and through where the kids were climbing, to get up inside the top arch, but he didn't quite fit
Who is that pretty brown-eyed girl?
He scrambled up over this rock instead
Here they are inside the arch
A good-looking bunch (Rachel stayed below with me)
Olivia and I are posing in the lower arch
Tyler on the edge
The kids and I. Can't believe it was just two years ago. Look at how much they have changed!

Once again, we have purchased a National Parks Pass. So I am thinking we need to get serious about using it before it expires. It cost a pretty penny. But I suppose as long as we go to at least eight parks this year, then we can justify it. I hope we can hit even more than that. We definitely need to spend some more time in Canyonlands, too. And I would like to explore Zions a little more. But there are several others not too far away we need to check out, if we can.
What a wonderful world we live in!
