National Parks: Arches & Canyonlands

Apache Junction, AZ.  H89 L69

Judy and I have completed our shortened travel season and arrived back at our winter location- Sunrise Superstition RV Resort in Apache Junction. Normally we travel two and half to three months before arriving at our wintering location but business transactions dictated that we get back to AZ earlier this year.

Last year we meandered down the Pacific Coast from Newport, Oregon to Point Magu, CA. before cutting east to AZ. We enjoyed and never tired of the coastline beauty.  This year we took a route further east before we headed south. The landscape was a 180 degree shift from last year, rugged landscapes and deep canyons. The lands were wide open and sparsely populated. The beauty was just as awe inspiring though. Judy and I never tired of it throughout the 1500 miles journey. I am posting pics from Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Monument Valley. Utah has some of the most dramatic geological land forms found in the United States. Although pics can capture some of the grandeur nothing beats seeing these lands in person.
