Arches National Park was one of the many National Parks we have visited over the years. The red rocks and formations are an amazing sight to see.


The Landscape Arch, a rock formation at Arches National Park. This arch is known to be the longest natural arch in the world.


Above are the Three Sisters or the Three Gossips.


Elephant Rock also seen at Arches National Park.  This park is a must see if you are visiting Utah.  I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for the visit and comments.

Florida Day 9

Florida Day 9

The early morning of day 9 of our Florida trip was spent near Crystal Springs and Fort Island Gulf Beach. We did a little walk and I did some birding on the beach.




Lots of Black Skimmer, gulls and terns.


We also visited the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.  Awesome variety of  native birds and animals. They also have a nice display of Manatees.




It looks like this is the place to be, the native birds on the outside are actually trying to find a way into the park.


We were able to watch the manatee be fed at this time. I have to admit after seeing the Manatees in the wild, I was a little sad to see these in captivity.


Apparently this  famous hippo "Lu" a favorite at the Homosassa Spring wildlife park was once an animal actor back in the 1960's. He is the oldest hippo in captivity. I hope you enjoyed this post and images. Our next stop is in Ocala Florida.
