Park Avenue.  No, not the one in New York — the one in Arches National Park in Utah.  Park Avenue is one of the trails in Arches that we hiked during our June, 2011, visit.  The trail got the name ‘Park Avenue’ because the rock formations resembled skyscrapers.

We got to the trail head in the morning before too many others were around.  It was a nice hike through the canyon, which we finished before the day got too hot.

    Wow, George! You really captured the beauty of these rock formations. You were smart to get this hike out of the way early. Arches is one hot place!

    Are these the rocky mountains housing the library of the Mormons? Great color for rocks. By the way, i got a big laugh when you referred to my pet as midget, haha, i forget that term as an adjective to it. If only i remembered, i would have used that word in the post.

    George, those shots are absolutely gorgeous with the bright blue sky. They are so crisp and clear it is like being there. Are those straight out of the camera?

    Beautiful! How much hiking did you have to do? Isn’t the weather still uncomfortable at that time of the year?

  24. Judy Says:

    I love the way the rock contrasts with the cloudless sky!!!

  25. Andrea Says:

    Those are spectacular colors George, even if i’ve seen them in many photos, it seems more beautiful when the photographer is more familiar.
