The park is heavily visited much of the year and hordes of tourists can detract from the eye-popping scenery. Tim and I visited Arches one snowy, fog-shrouded day and, in our own Desert Solitaire moment, had the park to ourselves. These are the images from that January day:
|The view from Park Avenue overlook.|
|Juniper in the snow.|
|Striking a pose in front of balanced rock.|
|Don't try this in May—you're likely to be flattened |
by bumper-to-bumper traffic.
|Clearing skies reveal the contrasts between snow and rock.|
