Arches, Moab, and Canyonlands

I spent last week in Utah, visiting Moab, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park, prior to Wasatch. Now I have to read Desert Solitaire by Ed Abbey. Abbey is dead now, but he wrote a lot of fiction related to the environment and this part of the world. Arches was one of the most amazing places I've ever been. While there, I hiked the Devil's Garden in Arches, Negro Bill Canyon outside of Moab, and atop the cliffs of the Island in the Sky in Canyonlands. I also went into Arches in the middle of the night twice, to catch the stunning clear sky, with the Milky Way plainly visible, above the balanced rock.
