On the Way To Arches National Park

I just had to share some photos of the different starts and stops along the way to Arches National Park so please ENJOY!

When we left Monument Valley we stopped at a roadside stop ran by the Navajo Reservation.

I bought these beautiful bracelets.


You will see these roadside stands along the way… so try to stop because they do have some beautiful handmade jewelry and pottery.

Another great tip was shared to me from Ingrid at Live Laugh RV.

She suggested we visit Gooseneck State Park. We were so delighted that we did! Thank You Ingrid!

You know you are getting close to Moab, Utah (home of Arches National Park)when you see this.

  1. What a beautiful place to visit! I really need to take a trip to that part of the US again someday. Newspaper rock is quite amazing as well. It would be very interesting to be able to ‘read’ the story, if that is what it is. I am imagining one of those stories where someone starts with a short paragraph and or sentence, and each author adds another taking the story to unexpected places.

  2. Beautiful bracelets along with beautiful country. I can’t wait to visit these places in a couple of weeks 🙂 btw…. had a great time yesterday at the botanical garden. Hope to get together one more time before heading north.

  3. Love the bracelets!! I use to stop but now I don’t wear the jewelry I have.

    Gee, this drive looks very familiar:) It is a beautiful drive from Bluff to Moab. Thanks for the shout out!!

    1. Oh, just you wait… Arches and Bryce photos are coming soon!
      By the way… it was a beautiful trip from start to finish!

      1. Oh Please Do It! I can not believe how beautiful the state of Utah is. I just posted about Arches. So please enjoy my pictures as you get out your road maps and plan that Road Trip! 😀

  4. Newspaper Rock is really intriguing – thanks for sharing it! I’ve never heard of it before. I’d love to see it. About how big is it?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I would say it was about 30 feet across and 10 feet high. it was definitely something to see!

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
