Delicate Arch Hike

interesting skies

Delicate Arch is THE arch, the one that’s on the Christmas ornament we bought and on just about everything else. You have to go all the way to the end of the trail to see it and it’s worth it.

The Needles

The Needles is one of two sections of Canyonlands National Park you can reach with a standard vehicle. There’s good hiking on the Slickrock trail and great views.

Islands in the Sky


Islands in the Sky is one of the two sections of Canyonlands National Park accessible with a standard vehicle. It has nice views and good easy hiking options.

Devil’s Garden Hike

Devil's Garden

We hiked to the Double O Arch and back on the main trail and did all the side trails. Lots of rock fins. It was a technical hike but not really strenuous. Just loooooooong.


Box-Death Wilderness Area

We didn’t find much of interest in Moab itself but it’s a great base for exploring Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. (Along with some nearby state parks we didn’t get to.)
