Arches National Park

After stopping in to check around late last afternoon, we were back early this morning.  We stopped and say some nice rock formations along the roadside and then took a walk into Landscape arch.  It was worth the walk  - especially since it was under 70 degrees.

It is over 300 feet long.  Since a 70 foot piece fell off a few years ago, you can no longer walk under it.
Here it is from a litle further  back.

We had a look at some  rock that were up high and not really stable looking.

As you may know, this arrea was under the ocean and many years ago the land moved up.  There afre several major layers of sediment, and this was eroded away by wind and water.

You can see at least 3 major types of sedimentary layers in the photo above,   all having different ratess of erosion.  Wind, Water, and Time are the things that cause the erosion.

We took over 100 photos and will post some more later.
