A view from one of our (closed) National Parks – Arches
This is a photo I took about 2 years ago in the Arches National Park near Moab Utah. I thought it appropriate to post this as we are all being deprived of some of these sights during the current government closure. It is a little busy but I wanted to capture many aspects of the landscape – the desert, the desert foliage, the red rocks and the snow covered mountains in the distance. This was an incredibly beautiful, quiet and serene setting and it was in an area of the Park where my wife and I were the only ones there. Another reason that this came to mind is that we currently have friends from China who are in the middle of a month long, once in a lifetime trip to the US. So far they have been unable to enjoy the sights of Washington DC and they are currently on their way to the Grand Canyon – I can only imagine what they must think of our current governmental issues. In any case, I hope this scene calms you like it does me.
