Utah Vacation: Arches National Park - Day 2

Back in October Christian and I ran away for two weeks of adventure in the gorgeous state of Utah. I'd like to share some highlights from that trip because it really is a beautiful place.

On our second day in Arches, we set out early in the morning to hike the Primitive Loop Trail which took us past 8 popular arches. 

Landscape Arch
On the way to Partition Arch. You can see the top of Landscape Arch on the far right.

Navajo Arch
My favorite part of the trail took us up high on an exposed ridge above a valley of fins.
Double O Arch. You can just make out the small arch beneath the left side of the big arch.

In the afternoon, we took a ranger-guided hike into the Fiery Furnace: a maze-like area that involves a like of scrambling. My kind of hike!

An optional route during the tour was to crawl through this hole.
The Skull (look at it upside down)

Next up on our trip: Goblin Valley State Park.
