Today was quite cold. It's been getting colder, but when we woke up today, it was freezing. The rain that had fallen on us the night before had been snow on La Sal Mountain a few miles away, and it was a beautiful sight.

We headed into Arches and checked out all the roadside attractions while bundled up in our parkas. The arches were very fun to climb around, especially when we got away from the tour buses. Our ranger lead hike was soon to start so we headed for the parking lot to meet up with the group.

The hike lead us through a confusing route of fins, boulders and alcoves. It was fun to see a different, more secluded part of the park. Our guide was very fun and informative and explained the geology involved in making such a place to us.
