Arches National Park - Windows Area

This is a popular spot at Arches, and in fact is the one stop they recommended for people with limited time in the park. There is an amazing concentration of arches in this small area. We found a spot to park, loaded up our water bottles, and walked around. You really need the water in the dry heat of this park. And it wasn't even that hot on this day, probably not warmer than the mid 80's.

Double Arch. Notice the second arch behind the main one.

It's dry out here.

And again, Amitha can't resist the temptation to climb on things.

And he made it to the top.
