On Toward Arches

It was about a four-hour drive from Eagle, Colorado to Arches National Park in Utah.  Along I-70, we saw several fracking sites in areas where there was little else.

This is open range for cattle and we were frequently driving over cattle gates, even to leave the interstate. Cattle gates are, of course, metal bars on the road placed over a ditch so that the cattle do not step out of their free range area.

We took that little road down to Cisco and then went south on 128, which follows the muddy Colorado River through the canyons.

The rock formations continued to get crazier as we approached the south side of Arches National Park.
