USA - Arches National Park, Utah

sunny 32 °C

Another scenic drive took us across Utah towards Arches National Park. We stopped off at Kiva Koffeehouse for lunch. Situated in The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument on Hwy 12, it’s a small family run café with panoramic views over the beautiful valley.


We camped in Moab, just outside of Arches and spent a day exploring the many views and walk on offer in the National Park. There are 2,000 rocky red arches dotted throughout the park, formed by unusual erosion processes, it’s just a matter of finding them! In the 35+ degree celcius temperatures, we decided to skip the ‘Firey Furnace’ a square mile of jagged rocks you can get lost in for hours, guided tour reccomended.

Our favourite arches were north and south Arch, with gorgeous views behind, as well as double arch. Paul was in his element afterwards as he rode his mountain bike off into the sunset on some slickrock trails just outside of Moab. They rate them as the worlds best trails!
