After setting up the camp, with only a few minor technical issues. We headed out to the trails. We decided to try a 3 mile hike to a Arch called Corona Arch. It was a really great trail and the kids had a great time. It was mostly slick rock, so very different from hiking at home. Lots of cairns to follow.

It was a great hike. After grabbing dinner in Moab, we headed back to the campsite for night. We built a fire and had a nice evening. Cooper and Lauren loved the fire :).
We Love fire
The next morning we headed over to Arches National Park. It was a free weekend, so the crowds were big, but manageable. First thing was Balance rock. Then on to Delicate Arch. It was about a three mile hike that we made a little more challenging, by following a group up the wrong way. After some scrambling, we made it to the correct side and were able to check out the Arch.
We are doing well on fam photos this trip :)
We wanted to check out some of the other sites that Arches has to offer.......

We had a great morning in Arches. After we had a burgers in Moab, we went over to Canyonlands for a quick visit. For now, I gotta run, so I will talk about that soon!
