May 2019 Orations
Happy May! Spring is still playing her “you never know what the weather will be tomorrow” game. Bad weather remains on the East Coast and in the Midwest, while the Western states seem to be actually having nice balmy weather. To get your minds off the rain and storms, I have chosen a national park in Utah called Arches National Park. Visiting this amazing park really makes you appreciate the beauty of our Earth. One can discover a landscape of contrasting colors, land forms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. I have featured four of the many I visited which I found to be good examples of the park. The park is adjacent to the Colorado River, 4 miles (6 km) north of Moab, Utah. Check a full page of photos from Arches on our website using the Mountains, Canyons and Caverns link on the left side, then clicking on Utah Mountans.
Utah is really the place to visit for a variety of rock formation and fascinating arches. Natural Bridges and Bryce National Park are two more places that are really amazing.
Until next time…
