UEA comes, and we go, to Arches. It is a perfect time of year to see the parched red rock land of southern Utah. We shared the weekend with Mike and Rochelle's family and had a blast. Here is the weekend (more or less) in pictures.
Our first hike, Negro Bill Canyon, just outside the National Park
Climbing scary cliffs in the Windows
Our little almost 2-year-old climber
The newly replaced flat, day 2
Entering the Fiery Furnace
Hugging the walls out of Surprise Arch
Our troopers at Kissing Turtles, stopped for lunch and a pee
Doesn't she look grown up?
Skull arch and another pee
Clarification - all the pee breaks were NOT for me, just the kids. Wanted to be clear.
Looking back as we make it out of the Furnace
Our personal fin at our campsite
We're so cool, we don't need the trail. We'll sneak up the back of Wall Arch and wave to the poor trail hikers.
Could this be the drop where the kids had to be lowered down the dad's legs off the ledge? The very one that didn't involve any mothers' opinions and caring-yet-slightly-dirty looks at husbands?
