Skywatch.... Arches National Park



This is a Skywatch photo from Arches National Park. My header photo is my actual entry for skywatch. My hubby son and I enjoyed walking the trails at Arches. The rock color and formations were wonderful. These are a few pictures I took during our trip there.

  6. Excellent! If I had to choose a favorite National Park, I think it might be Arches. (It's a hard choice because all have something unique and wonderful.) But I really loved Arches when we went and look forward to when it comes up again on our itinerary. Wonderful captures!

  17. Hi Eileen, there are so many places that we have yet to explore! Though I have not been there, I saw almost similar to this Arches in Alabama Hills, in Lone Pine by the Bishop/Mammoth Area.

    P.S. I am exploring Photoshop.

  33. Your photos are beautiful and fascinating. They make me feel how small we people are.

  34. Eileen, these photos are wonderful. It's probably just my imagination (and my interest in weaving) but that looks like the silhouette of an Indian woman seated in front of her loom, down there in the shadow of the arch in your header photo. That makes the photo even more special to me.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. And a big thank you for traveling and taking photos and sharing them with us.
