In early planning of our drive across the country, we talked about visiting Moab and The Arches but just couldn't figure out how to squeeze it in. Yet, here we are. We somehow made it up to Canada and are now within hours of Mexico. It's a pretty wonderful feeling when you ride the wave out and follow opportunity. I would say that is more my idea of the American Dream than the standard 9 to 5 and house mortgage. The freedom to choose our own destiny and seek out opportunity rather than settle for a life less than our dreams.
Olin had a blast studying these big rocks in the park and pointing, along with "Oohs and Aahs." This part of the country is like nothing we have ever seen!
The van drove through these curves and hills like a noble steed. She trucked and trekked and got us all the way to Balanced Rock and even snuck in a peek of Delicate Arch. We were enamored by all the cool rock structures and blown away by the though of ocean once covering all of this magnificent landscape. While taking in the sights, we all felt very unison in the fact that our trip was coming to an end.
