Arches National Park, Utah – 8 November, 2005
Arches is quite unusual. We're glad we came here. Here are some pictures of Arches.
We rent two DVDs for the evening. Sin City and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. This morning it comes to me which part Rutger Hauer played in Sin City. He's my favorite actor. The Hitcher was his best movie. I see from the credits that Quentin Tarantino played a role in creating the movie.
The weather is pleasant. It's a late winter. It usually snows here by October 15th. The average elevation is about 5,000 feet. This is still part of the huge chunk of ocean bottom that was uplifted several miles and covers parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. We've been roaming in this uplifted area for several weeks now.
