In November of 2018, I returned to Arches National Park with my sister, her husband, John, and their daughters, my sweet, little niecelings, Isla and Iris.
It had been 20 years and 6 months since I first went to Arches National Park. It was May of 1998. My first winter in Summit County was over. I had taught snowboarding at Copper Mountain Snowboard School and lived in Leadville, Colorado. Leadville’s elevation is 10,200 feet above sea level. It’s the highest incorporated town in America. I was ready for some sunshine.
These pictures were taken with my old film camera. I don’t even remember what kind. Not an SLR. Just a simple point-and-shoot, buy your film at the store and have it developed kind of camera.
We went to Moab to do a five-day river trip on Cataract Canyon. The water was too high, so instead, we opted for a trip on the Delores River. While we were planning our river trip, we took a day and went to Arches National Park.
