|Gene and Cyndy spent the night in Moab, but took a nice drive through Arches National Park in the afternoon. The next day they went back and really explored the park. They took some nice hikes and got some great pictures. They tried to get camping in the Devils Garden Campground, but it was full and you can make reservations 4 days in advance. We were advised that at this time of year that it is recommended to make reservations, it is not a first come first serve anymore. There are many BLM (Bureau of Land Management) campgrounds along the Colorado that are very reasonable, but you will be dry camping. This is where we ended up camping and it was very beautiful with the river flowing next to us and the canyon as an amazing backdrop. There are also many private campgrounds in and around town, we stayed the first night at Portal RV Resort which was very nice. The people were friendly and helpful and the facility was great. It had laundry, showers, electric, pumpouts, sewage, dog runs, just a little bit of everything! It was a little pricey, but well worth it after dry camping for a week!! The visitor center at Arches has alot of information and the rangers are willing to answer any questions you have. We were advised to take the hike through Fiery Furnace with a ranger, but this filled up days in advance and was booked until after we were due to leave. The view there is beautiful, we did hike a little bit of the Park Avenue trail, all around the primative trail at the Windows Arches north and south, and also the Turret Arch. Took an up hill hike to Delicate Arch and one on the Devils Garden Trailhead. Can you find the lizard and the elephant in the photos? We were lucky to see so many blooming flowers after the spring rains.............it was amazing. Memorial Day weekend was crowded here and this is one of the busiest National Parks we have been to, it is close to Moab and easy accessable. You can see much of the park from your car with little walks.
