Double Arch

Hiking on trails and slickrock was great fun 22 years ago, and it was a joy to return to Arches National Park with two of our children in early April.

It was windy! Of course, it was springtime and not all that warm… wearing shorts was wishful thinking on my part.

I had to give up wearing shorts after having my legs sand-blasted.
