To finish off my full day photography tour, we headed to Arches National Park in the late afternoon after stopping to view some petroglyphs by the river. IT WAS SO COOL! I understand now why that park is so popular. After driving all up and down the park, we headed to an isolated spot overlooking Balanced Rock. It looked like we might not have the sunset we were hoping for, but at the last minute the sun peaked out from behind the clouds and bathed Balanced Rock with a gorgeous red. We were like kids in a candy store! The scene behind us was equally beautiful.
