In 2010, during my 6 month tour of the National Parks, I visited Arches. But, when Bob invited me to tag along on one of his photo sessions into the park, I readily agreed. It's hard to get too much of a good thing. We went to the Windows District. Here are some of the scenes I was able to capture.

On the other side of the parking lot from the hike to the North Window is the rock formations called the Parade of Elephants. Do you see them?
