A good portion of Day 3 was spent at Arches National Park. It was pretty warm but the day was fantastic. Posting a lot of photos!
I thought this kind of looked like the Three Wisemen
Petrified Sand Dunes
I found this guy with a very long tail
All the balancing rocks people have formed

The two windows
These photos are of the double arch
Enjoying some shade
In the middle of nowhere there was an old homestead of the Wolfe Ranch
Ancient Indian Art
This is the arch that is printed on Utah License Plates
This was a very cool tree I was sitting in.
Aren't the rock formations really cool looking? There are over 2000 arches cataloged in Arches National Park. Most of them must be pretty rough terrain to get to.
DH and I had such a great time exploring this place. If we had more time we would have done more of the hikes, but we had to get to Salt Lake by the end of the day to see the family.
Seeing the family was pretty great! It was so nice to see my dad doing so much better than when I was here in January/February. Also, my sister Alicia's, family were waiting for us to arrive at my mom and dad's house. Visiting with them and my nieces was so fun!
Day 4 we stayed with my parents not doing much except taking my dad to dialysis, going out to lunch with my mom, and later that night my brother Jay and my sister Alicia brought their families over for a BBQ. It was so fun catching up with everyone. However, I am so mad at myself now for not taking pictures of this part of my trip. I can't believe I didn't and now feel so sad! Thanks for the memories everyone! At least I have the memories.
In the next post I will write about the graduations that was the reason for making this trip in the first place. Check back soon!
