I promise I won't bore you with a bunch of geological details. If you're interested, you're probably also the sort of person who will go look it up. If you're not interested, your eyes will glaze over and you won't read what I've written anyway! :)
Here's the short version:
The La Sal Mountains (in the distance) are a lot younger than the monoliths of Arches National Park.
The most interesting thing, to me, about the formations you see here is that wavy line. Fascinating! (Yes, I know what it is, but I promised ... ) :P
Our internet connection on this trip is a bit sporadic. We generally HAVE a connection, but sometimes it's really slow. I've been looking at as much of your art as I can, but commenting very little. I don't like to wait! If you posted something I would normally like, I assure you I liked it. :)

Great shot of what seems to be a very phallic rock formation that I missed on my recent trip to Arches. The people provide a nice sense of scale here. My own visits to the photography gallery have been limited lately due to bad response times (which seems to be fixed now), so I wasn't even aware that you had embarked on your epic journey. Hope you & Bill have have a great time & don't forget to stop by if you end up in southern Oregon towards the end of your trip...

Amazingly Arches is busy no matter what the weather is. Hope you stick around for the sun..Spring is a mixed bag. Got married just down the road at Dead Horse State Park. Sunset, full moon in June! Was awesome!
On the other side of the La Sals you will find the largest aspen stands anywhere in the west! Still winter up there tho :(
