Travels

REaD:

Moab, UT

Moab, Utah. Arches. Canyonlands. This area will have our hearts forever. Not only is this one of the most beautiful and unique spots in the U.S., but it’s the place where we got engaged. Yep, we’re gonna be getting married! We loved visiting this slice of the world this past December and we’re so excited to share our experience of it with you all as our first blog post regarding traveling. These will be coming as often as possible as a way for us to document and tell about the highlights of our travels. That being said, allow us to brag on Utah and take you there for a few minutes.

Arches National Park

Park Avenue

This mile-long hike is one of the first spots you come across and is a great introduction to the park. There’s beauty around every corner and it’s an easy trek for anyone.

Delicate Arch

This hike can be strenuous and long, but it’s so worth it - the view at the end is unlike anything we’d ever seen before. Standing before this iconic arch is something that everyone who goes to Arches should experience in person at least once.

Double Arch

This spot calls to the explorer. You’d be missing out if you took the path out to these astounding arches and didn’t climb throughout them. The views are breathtaking.

Sand Dune Arch

This spot is the place where (I) Noah proposed to Caroline. It’s a hidden, peaceful spot, and we’ll never forget it.

Overall, Arches National Park was one of the most interesting places we’ve been yet and we can’t wait to go back. We’d recommend it to any nature lover in a heartbeat.

Canyonlands National Park

We made a quick stop by Canyonlands after exploring almost all of Arches and we were absolutely amazed. This has to be one of the most underrated parks out there, as we had no idea what it would be holding in store for us. The canyons stretched as far as the eye can see, and we watched the sunset at a lookout point called Green River Overlook, and it was insanely gorgeous. Definitely stop here if you’re in the Moab area. We love this part of the world with a passion.
