From Arch to Arch in Arches National Park

Got up this morning to the fresh smell of rain so we will do short hikes as weather permits and see some sites from the van.
We managed to do quite a bit of hiking in Arches. 
We hiked out to north and south Windows, Turret and Double Arch in our first hike.

Then we drove up the road and hiked out to Sand Dune, Broken Arch and Tapestry Arch.

We had cloudy skies but except for a few drips we lucked out. It was beautiful weather for hiking except for the strong winds and they were only unpleasant in the exposed areas. 
Our wonderful innkeepers Vic and Anna who own and run Desert Inn B&B did our laundry for us while we were out hiking so we came back to freshly washed and dried clothes, that was truly a treat. 
By the time we got cleaned up it was 6:00 pm and we were ready for dinner. We ate in Moab at a place called "Twisted Sista's". If you are ever in Moab you have got to eat there, the food and service is amazing and the prices are totally reasonable.
