Still trippin...

Had a great time touring arches today. It's nice adventuring with my outdoorsy boy. We hiked out to the the Devils Garden and Matt saw the the sign that said "primitive trail" and said let's go there, so we did. It ended up being a gorgeous 7 mile hike on a trail that wasn't packed with tourists. We walked through washes and canyons and out on an enormous rock fin(tall narrow rock ridge) and then to some incredible arches.
Later we took the 3 mile round trip hike out to Delicate Arch, Utah's most famous arch. Despite waking to the morning rain it proved to be a nice day, a little cool and windy at times (at you can see from my "wild hair") but overall a beautiful hiking day.
