Partition Arch (miniature)

My husband and I were hiking in the Arches National Park. Our longest hike was almost over. We were very hot, tired and thirsty as the trailhead came into sight. However, a trail marker pointing the way to the Partition and Navajo Arches caught our attention. We did not succumb to our fatigue, but went ahead and took in the two sites. How glad we were that we made the journey! Both formations are worthy of being painted.
