Arches at Dawn

I got to Arches National Park too late to actually visit it the first afternoon because finding a campsite was a priority. I did get one on BLM lands only about 10 miles away.

So I was ready early the next morning to visit Arches.  I left my camp before first light and went to Moab and ate breakfast at Denny's.  Then I turned around and did the short drive to Arches. There was no one to check my senior pass, so I just started on the auto tour, just as the sky lightened. I turned on the Moab NPR and found there was a Native American music show on.  The music consisted of chanting and flute playing, and was a beautiful counterpart to the scenery.

Here is my very primitive attempt to recreate that experience for you.
