The next morning (Friday the 13th), I decided to stay at Green River State Park for the weekend. It was a gorgeous day and after doing a few chores in the morning took a drive over to Arches National Park.
One of the numerous formations at Arches. It was late afternoon and nearby formations cast their shadows, slowly creeping ever closer to this formation.
Another formation silhouetted against the skyline.
The snow-capped La Sal mountains rise up in the distance and dominate the horizon
Balancing Rock. From this angle it really does looks like it is doing a balancing act.
But as you walk around it, the angle of view and perspective change; it is securely attached to the base rock. In time, the wind and rain will erode the base further and some day, in the distant future, the balancing rock will be no more.
And, of course, the setting sun marked the end of another beautiful day!
