DELICATE ARCH…ARCHES NATIONAL PARK…is it worth it?
We started our 35,000 step arch-tastic day with the Delicate Arch Trail in Arches National Park at sunrise.
It was 100% worth it + GORGEOUS! So gorgeous, a guy proposed in front of all of us.
ARCHES is MASSIVE! That’s partially why we loved it so much.
Plus, it has so many arches, holes, windows it’s impossible to count them all.
After hiking Delicate Arch, we decided to tackle…Devil’s Garden.
Of course…I choose the super tough hikes where we get lost in the middle of nowhere and it’s hot AF.
But, the view at the top was EPIC!
🚨 TRAVEL TIP 🚨 |
Only take the primitive trail if you have the offline map downloaded to your phone.
We went back and forth for about an hour trying to figure out where to climb up the fins/fingers.
NO JOKE, we helped ~6 other people find the trail, since it isn’t marked very well.
Thankfully, between the lil blue dot and noticing the lil rock formations we found our way.
Moab didn’t disappoint on the food front either. We noshed on some ridiculously delicious food.
Desert Bistro was super romantic, while Il Posto Rosso was brand-new + very unique.
And last but certainly not least, our crash pad [aka Airbnb] was absolute perfection.
💜 BUCKET LIST RECOMMENDATION 💜 |
If you’re in Moab for multiple days, rock crawling in a 4×4 is a MUST DO!
This video + description tells you everything you need to know about being scared shitless on…
Hells Revenge Moab + Fins and Things.
So, how did Arches stack up against the rest of the ~15 national parks + forests we visited?
Watch til the end to see how it ranked.
