My husband signed out on leave at midnight and we hit the road to Washington. It was a good feeling to have El Paso in the rear view mirror and to be out on the open road. It had been way too long since we’d been on a road trip and we were all itching to get out of here for a while.
The first stop on our travels was Arches National Park. I was there 2 years ago (you can see the post about that trip here), but Andy wasn’t with me and I decided that he just HAD to see it. It’s pretty awe-inspiring.
You have to head up a bunch of switchbacks when you first enter the park and you get such a gorgeous view while you’re climbing.
This wasn’t a get-out-of-the-car trip. We stopped a couple of times, but we mostly went for the drive this time around. The kids already earned their Junior Ranger badges the last time we were here. Andy was set on getting to Washington in as little time as possible. And it was hot out.
Have you ever been to Arches National Park? Have you done any hiking there? I think that next time we go, I’ll plan on actually getting out of the car.
