ARCHES NATIONAL PARK – Double Arch Trail Moab, Utah

Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller     Expedition Date:   September 21 & 22, 2019

We camped in Moab Slick Rock Campground four nights. First night we sat in the park until midnight at the Park Avenue Trailhead (Photo #2) & looked up at the beautiful galaxy for two hours.  You could see thousands of stars and the Milky Way clearly. There are over 2,000 arches in the park.

The next day we hiked three long trails.   Double Arch Trail was the site of a chase scene from “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade” movie where we posed at the same location as River Phoenix who portrayed Young Indiana Jones (Photos #3, #4 & #5).   On that trail was the famous Face in the Rock (Photo#6).  The second trail was The Windows Trail, a 1.5 mile trail that took us to the Windows Arches, the South Window & the North Window. as well as Turret Arch (Photos #7, #8 & #9).  Along the trail I photobombed a Chinese woman who was having her photo taken.  Within seconds, six screaming Chinese women and Rosie joined in the international photo shoot (Photo #12).  We didn’t understand each others language but everyone was happy.  Behind the Windows Arches on the trail we discovered Foot Rock (Photo #10).
