    Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are Spectacular

    I go to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks every year. Those two National Parks are only about 30 miles apart.
    Also there are many other National and State Parks and Recreation areas within 100 miles of Arches like Capitol Reef NP, Goblin Valley State Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, Natural Bridges, and Lake Powell Recreation Area. You can see a lot if you spend a week in that area of Utah. Then a little further out is Monument Valley, Mesa Verde, Goosenecks, Ute Tribal Park, Canyon De Chelly, Hovenweep, and the list goes on.
    The 4 corners area of the U.S. is abundant with fantastic sights to see.
    There are also thousands of Anasazi Native American ruins scattered everywhere. Hike up any canyon and you're bound to see a ruin up on a cliff. It's quite a reward to scramble up a cliff look into one of the ruins and see 1000 year old corn cobs and pottery remnants.
    The 1st 8 photos were taken at Arches and Canyonlands. The 9th was taken on Lake Powell up the Escalante river section. The waterfall is called Cathedral In The Desert. It's recently been exposed due to low water in the reservoir. The last photo was taken in Little Wild Horse slot canyon near Goblin Valley State Park.
    People are missing out if they don't visit this beautiful part of America.
