Extra Images of Moab, Utah

No-Fit Photos From My Visit to Arches National Park and Moab - September 13, 2013

A Visit to Moab Always Warms The Heart
In desperate need of fun after a long week, I visited four arches in Arches National Park in Moab, Utah.
There was Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch, Navajo Arch and Partition Arch. Below are extra photos from the day.

Rainbow and Waterfall

Something remarkable happened in the afternoon: It rained! There was an intermittent drizzle for about an hour, and then there was 15 minutes of intense rainfall. Soon after that, I left Moab and entered "River Road" (Highway 128) to return to Colorado.

As I waited in line at a construction site, I noticed across the Colorado River that water was flowing down the cliffs. And some became waterfalls! I doubt the water ran for long, but it was special to see water tumbling down in many spots.

The second waterfall was miles up the canyon. A tall drop.

The bottom photo shows two things you don't see often around Moab, let alone in the same picture: A rainbow and a waterfall. :)
