Moab - day 3

We spent the day at Arches NP, with a highlight "Fiery Furnaces Tour" in the morning - it was awesome! I highly recommend it (reservations needed).


Our ranger, Geology Joel, was so enthusiastic, entertaining, and enlightening - made us laugh for 3 hours:


Look, a scary predator!


Starting our hike, through a little bridge:


Joel wasn't above getting his hands dirty to tell a story:


He was also something of a thespian:


Coming through a narrower section of rocks:


Fun times!


Up in the air, Junior Birdman...


Single file everyone!


A view to the sky:


Neat rocks:


Making our way over another obstacle:


In line for a maneuver that included a "Fiery Furnace Shuffle":


More fun rock clambering:


Hey hey, we're the Monkees...


Synchronized shuffling:


When you take photos coming up behind someone, you tend to get a lot of butt shots:


One giant leap for John:


Guess who was playing with the camera:


Distant scenery:


A view of Surprise Arch - not easy to get a better vantage point, but it was really cool:


Yay for the Fiery Furnace Tour! Thank you, Joel!!


That seemed to wear John out a little, so he took a nap while we drove down a bumpy road:


Turret Arch:


Bob in the North Window:


Yoga on the Rocks:


An attempt at Yoga on the Rocks (and a failed attempt to fully capture it on film):


Balanced Rock and my new desert hat:


Now we're streaming Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner from NetFlix - it looks just like here!
