Arches, Megahertz and CNM again

Our original intention was to hike the Fiery Furnace. However, we arrived too late and all of the permits were gone for the day. Instead, we drove to Devil's Garden and hiked to some arches. A beautiful day...perfect for hiking. Trailsweeper Bob...
I named these formations...Rhodes Bake and Serve or perhaps the "Biscuits".

Unusual formation near Landscape Arch.

Pine Tree Arch with beauties at the base...

Fine Yucca

Fine couple, Rock and Desertbound

Tunnel Arch

Sisters are Pals, too.

Mayflower finds a sandy slot...

After a few hours of hiking and lunching, we drove to GJ by way of the Colorado River Canyon and Cisco the Ghost Town. Arrived at GJ for a great slumber party with wall to wall beds.

Cute little Megahertz, Nutmeg or Nutter Butter

Monday morning we visited Colorado National Monument with Bethany and kidlets. Mayflower stayed on too and came home with us. It was fun seeing the monument after a fresh snow storm.

This is a "canyon within a canyon". Notice the V shaped canyonette in the center.

By the time we reached Cold Shivers Point, it was snowing again and we had enough.

Thank you everyone for a great time! Rock and DB for going to Arches with us, T and N for hosting us all and Bethany and kids for joining us at CNM.
