TUESDAY MORNING July 21

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Tisdag 21 juli 14:43

We are in Moab which is a city in eastern Utah. It’s a gateway to massive red rock formations in Arches National Park.  Canyonlands National Park features mesas and buttes carved by the Green and Colorado rivers, plus Native American rock art. Dinosaur tracks can be found at sites like Bull Canyon Overlook and Copper Ridge. In the city, collections at the Museum of Moab include dinosaur bones and archaeological artifacts

 

The park consists of 76,679 acres (119.811 sq mi; 31,031 ha; 310.31 km2) of high desert located on the Colorado plateau The highest elevation in the park is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and the lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. The park receives an average of fewer than 10 inches (250 mm) of rain annually.

 The area was originally named a national monument on April 12, 1929, and was redesignated as a national park on November 12, 1971. The park received more than 1.6 million visitors in 2018

   

Mom said this looks like the three vise men.................hmmm here we go again


   



 

it was 104F (42C) so we waited to drive here as late as possible but making sure we got out of the park before dark.

It would have been terrifying to drive here in the dark.

I only went out once it was more comfortable in the car with ACon.

     

Again we can not imagine how the pioneers walked across this barren land? 



 


A brave little tree is trying to survive



    


     


Mom didn't feel like walking on any of the trails either so most pictures are from the car........but some brave people hiked to the arch

 


Balancing rock

 

Is this a doghouse or ?

 


Utah will celebrate Pioneer Day on Friday with parades and fireworks...............if it wasn't for the virus it would have been fun to participate says Mom...............truly I'm glad we don't stay,too much noise for me

We will continue East today ....................I think???

Mom say we need to get upNorth to avoid this scorching heat.....................we'll see what she come up with


wet kisses to ya'll
