A few weeks Kristen and I went to a magical land… a magical land called Utah.
I’ve been daydreaming about Utah for years. To the point that I’ve been calling it my favorite state despite not ever going ’til now. And now I think it really is my favorite state. Colorado IS GREAT AND BEAUTIFUL AND MOUNTAINS AND LUSH AND HEALTH, you know. But Utah is just… insane. Weird stuff everywhere. Weird, uninhabited, untouched, there-by-the-grace-of-God-if-you-believe-in-that-kind-of-thing stuff everywhere. I digress.
Our first stop on a beeeaaauutiful Thursday to kick off a 5 day adventure: Arches National Park.
This park. Wow. I mean how many parks basically have a book written about their beauty? (Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire – I wanted to read it before and now it’s next on my list). It’s just something everyone should see for their own eyes. For now, you can look here at our stops throughout the park 🙂
North Window, South Window, & Turret Arch + also Double Arch
No pictures will do the magic and beauty and purity of that day, but it’s all I got for now. Next we were off to Canyonlands!
“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”
― Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
