It was another sunny and warmer day in high 70's at this high plateau.
This park was more remote and had fewer people, so we took Meghan on the short trails.
The character of this park was much different than Arches. It has four different areas; Island In the Sky, The Needles, The Maze, and The Rivers all a long ways from each other. It could take a day just to drive to each area for a short 2 - 3 hour visit.
Meghan loved the smells and fresh air. Stickers and cactus needle were an ever present danger however.
The Allen Family.
We hiked to this area.
Taking a little rest.
Behind some healthy looking Pinion Pine trees. The vegetation was lush with the rains that were received last month.
Walking on slick rock which is an ancient desert sand dunes which has been solidified with sodium bicarbonate.
This was a favorite view point.
A different view through the same arch with the La Sal Mountains in the background.
The view below of the Green River, White Rim, and Still Water Canyon.
