Taking a Break

No photo today 🙁 I am going to be taking the month of November off from the blog. November is a busy month for me at work and I am having trouble keeping up with the blog so I have decided to take a break. I hope you all understand. I will be turning on…

Arches Scaled

Arches National Park is home to some colossal rock formations—carved by water, wind, and time. The scale of the rock arches can be hard to fathom. That is why I love this photo.

There are many examples throughout the Monument of this historic art form, but some are easier to see then others. This particular set is off of Island Park Road,…
