This year we took a winding road trip through Amarillo, Texas then Durango, Colorado and ended up in Moab, Utah to see some national parks.
Arches National Park
First we hiked to the Landscape Arch. That span is over 300 feet.
Then we saw a steep path up the side of a rocky hill and climbed to the highest point.
The next morning, we watched the sunrise through The Window Arch.
There were so many amazing sites here, but my favorite was the Double Arch.
We got here early in the morning and had it to ourselves for a while.
Canyonlands National Park
Just down the road we explored the edge of a huge canyon and looked through another arch.
After two days in Moab we headed back towards home.
Basically in the middle of no where we stood at the Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico borders.
We headed back through New Mexico. I made several left turns in Albuquerque then stopped off in Carlsbad.
Carlsbad Caverns National Park
After an elevator ride down 750 feet we entered a subterranean wonderland.
From here we drove all day and finally made it back home to Round Rock.
