Sunset at Arches

We were only for 36 hours in Moab, 1 day 2 nights. We wanted to do the musts seen/do, but it’s a lot to do in such a short time. So in our bucket list was to mountain bike and see the famous Arches.
In our short day, we woke up early about 6 am, got our stuff together (sports clothing, cameras, food to picnic, filled out our water bottles) and went for breakfast. Thomas was craving Denny’s so we went there for a full american bkfts: pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruits, and of course coffee.
After that ‘a-lot-of-food’ we went to rent some bikes. There are many spots to rent bikes in Moab, but we went to Poison Spider Bikes. It is Disneyland for a mountain biker.
For aprox $50us each, we got brand news double suspenssion bikes. Fit them into the car and went to Dead Horse Point National Park (we’ll post it later on in a different story).
After spending half a day biking, we head back to Moab to return the bikes. We went to the market and buy some more food and some beers to spend the rest of the day / night at the Arches.
Arches National Park it’s a big pak at about 15 km from Moab. It’s so big that you’ll need more of a day to see it majors “attractions” as the petrified dunes, the tight canyons you can walk inside, the devils garden, the famous Balanced Rock, and of course the Delicate Arch, among other many arches.
It is the national park with more natural arches, which are erosioned rocks.
After making some stops to skate a bit, throw some arrows, see the Balanced rock, etc etc, we arrived to where the Delicate Arch trail starts. It was around 6:30 and we wanted to arrive before sunset, which was about 7:15pm. It is a aprox 3km hike which because of its terrain it takes about an hour to hike up. We didn’t want to miss the sunset and made it a 30 min hike, and got up there for show time :).
