Arches National Park - Parc national Arches

September 08, 2012  •  1 Comment

This is our second visit (the first one in 2006) to the park. For a number of reasons, we feel differently this time. We are in the hot Summer months. And Arches lack shaded areas... The light is also different from Spring or Fall. We are still under the magic of Canyonlands too.

Arches has many great sites and opportunities for taking pictures. The colours are quite diverse, from white (salt) to deep red (sandstone).

C'est notre seconde visite (la première en 2006) à ce parc. Pour plusieurs raisons, c'est différent cette fois-ci. Nous sommes dans les mois chauds de l'été. Et Arches manque d'ombre... La lumière est aussi différente de celle du printemps ou de l'automne. Nous sommes encore sous la magie de Canyonlands

Arches offre plusieurs sites et occasions extraordinaires de faire des photos. Les couleurs sont vraiment variées, de blanc (sel) à rouge foncé (grès).

Of course, Arches derives its name from the over 2,000 arches one can find in the Park -- http://www.nps.gov/arch/index.htm

But many of them, when easy to reach, were crowded, still beautiful.

Arches tire son nom des 2000 arches et plus que l'on trouve dans le parc --  http://www.nps.gov/arch/index.htm . Mais plusieurs d'entre elles, quand elles étaient accessibles, étaient remplies de monde, quand même toujours belles.

Crowded Delicate Arch - Arches National Park We experienced two sand storms at the camping. A bit disconcerting as we were confined to the small r-Pod (trailer) two evenings in a row. No BBQ or 5 o'clock drinks outside!

Nous avons subi deux tempêtes de sable au camping. Un peu troublant parce que nous étions confinés dans notre petite r-Pod (roulotte) deux soirs de suite. Pas de barbecue ni d'appéritif de 5 h.
