It is a good thing that we are early risers. W were up early and headed over to Arches National Park by 7:30 am. The light was perfect. The red rocks were softly glowing and the colors of the grasses and desert plants were beautiful. We made our way over to the windows section and walked to North Window. We scrambled up the slickrock for a better view and to soak in the scenery. We drove around stopping at a few more overlooks but by 10:00 it was already quite hot and the light was getting flat. We decided to break early have lunch in town and take a siesta until it cooled down some. It was around 103 degrees by noon!  
By the late afternoon clouds moved in bringing thunder and lightning. We really didn't mind since the car was in desperate need of a bath. We never did get much rain but the sunset was a bust. We took a quick drive along the river in search of the illusive bighorn sheep. We have been on a quest to see them since we went through Big Horn Canyon in Colorado. I managed a quick view and we saw a glimpse of another near Blue Mesa but we want PICTURES! Hopefully in Yellowstone. 
Tomorrow we have a big drive up to Jackson Hole where we will meet up with three of our group. I am not sure of the internet access at our cabin at the Signal Mountain Lodge. I read that they have wifi in the lobby so if so I will post an update. We will be there for three days before moving on to Moulton Ranch Cabins.
