Big Orange Rocks

On our recent trip through southeastern Utah, my husband and I were overwhelmed by the beauty of the rock formations.  We visited Arches National Park during the middle of the day, not an ideal time for photography, but I managed to get some interesting shots.

The occasional pop of autumn foliage made an interesting contrast with the rocks.

The arches themselves are HUGE- hard to see the size in this photo.

We were only able to photograph Delicate Arch from a distance, but some people hiked all the way over to it.

I think the rocks on the left were called the Three Gossips.

See the shadow of the hiker on the rock? I never saw anyone up there, so have no idea if it was from a rock or an actual person!20141020-DSC_5740_melinda_anderson

And more orange rocks!
