I did my utmost to get up before sunrise, but it just wasn’t happening. Luckily Delicate Arch was still free of visitors when I arrived at 8:00 AM. Later in the day while visiting Double Arch I ran into a college group that I had seen in Canyonlands yesterday, and we hung out under the arches, enjoying the sun and talking about everything from golfing at the South Pole to local geology (despite my obviously immense knowledge, I let them do most of the talking on that one). The remainder of the day was spent crashed out in a hotel doing my best to scrub off a week of accumulated dirt. Clean is good.

  1. moab. i’ve been there!

    the arches were great, and i hiked, but the best part was when a jeep full of 18-year-old girls pulled up next to me while i was walking down the road and asked me to buy them captain morgan’s spiced rum. when they found out i was a wandering soul, they wanted to know what people were like outside of utah. they were from provo. ah, it made me remember what it was like to grow up in BFE.
