So, today we drove to the arches national park, it was a 4 hr drive. We are staying in a town called Moab, its just outside the arches national park.
Today we explored the arches national park. It was awesome, we got to see loads of arches that are carved into rock naturally. We saw te delicate arch, skyline arch, double arch, the north and south window arches, turret arch and sand dune arch - which was the coolest as it was between tall rocks and the floor was covered with sand. We also saw some petrified dunes, "the garden of eden", Balanced and "fiery furnace" - all of which are various rock landscapes
Today we drove from Moab back to the Denver. We went through the rocky mountains, and towns called Parachute, No Name (yes, a town does exist that is called no name!) and also Vail - the famous ski resort. Whilst driving throught the rockies and passing these places, we reached an altitude of over 10,200ft, thats the highest point we've been, at nearly 2 miles above sea level.
Today we went to and explored Denver city. We went to the 16th Street pedestrian mall and did some window shopping. For lunch we went down to the Hard Rock Cafe - yum! We also walked around Denver to see buildings, of which there were many as it was a city.
