getting there ...

 

There's no straight shot from Dinosaur National Monument to Arches National Park, so I go back into Colorado to head south.  This is a photo of some of the twisty-windy mountain land I drive through.  The reason I stop at this overlook is not for the photo, but to let my car, who's suffering greatly from altitude sickness, cool off a bit.

 

Here I am back in Utah.  This is the scene outside my window.  This is pretty much what all the I-70 scenery looks like.

Just about to Arches National Park, seeing the red rock through my bug-spattered windshield.
