Rock ‘n’ Roll

Woooooo Hoooooooooo! We rolled into the state of Utah and were blown away with the beauty of red rock country. Arches National Park (below) provided a collection of dramatic sandstone arches created by the patient process of erosion.

Dead Horse Point (the bottom picture) is a dramatic overlook of the Colorado River and the Canyonlands National Park (which some say rivals that of the Grand Canyon). The name comes from a legend that a band of wild horses were left trapped on the cliff top and sadly died of thirst, staring at the Colorado River 2000 feet below.

While the Utah high desert usually remains dry, we were unlucky/lucky enough to witness some heavy rainfall during our stay. One morning we awoke to an unusual hissing sound.

“What’s that noise?” said Zoa.

We opened the tent zipper and were surprised to find that a waterfall was spilling over the cliff behind us. Luckily our tent was not directly underneath!!
