Sunny Day near Moab ?
View looking east at Wilson's Arch. This was
my wife's first sighting of a natural arch in southern
Utah. A trail leads up to the arch.


Wilson Arch, also known as Wilson's Arch,
is a natural sandstone arch in SE Utah along U.S. Route
191, 24 miles south of Moab.

It has a span of 91' and height of 46.' It's visible from
the road to the east where there are turnouts with
interpretive signs.

We had a few clouds and light rain when we passed through,
but the nearby La Sals were quite spectacular in their
snowy mantle.

Geez, WHAT'S with all these peaks, mountains, and
natural landforms throughout the west called WILSON ???

For crying out loud! Why wasn't I named after a Wilson?

Just up the road 24 more miles, a billboard
(sign) reads:

"Please visit Moab's 'OTHER' arches, the
GOLDEN ones!"

Now, it just so happens that the "Golden
Arches" are the trademark for the
"McDonalds" chain of fast food restaurants.

I got "arched" in Moab, Utah! Would anybody
like fries with their burger ??? ??

We've had the other arches for about 15 years now. My daughters used to visit them to get a free Winnie the Pooh or his Friends, then a bit later one of them (daughters, I mean) tried working for/under them (arches, I mean) to get some extra money for the summer but she couldn't bear the burgers and switched to a corner shop after just one day. But she still quite likes fries. And I'm sure she wouldn't mind working in the shade of such an arch (if there is any shade available) :)

As we 'muddle' through our lives, we reflect
on our family & friends, and perhaps draw
comparisons (and recite poetry) about how
they "change" through the years. : ))

Yeah, but it still wasn't good enough to
beat "the awesome Carpathians" as photo-of-the-day.

Think I'll drown my sorrows in another
Slovak "red label" draft beer! : )

Please CLICK!

Thanks for telling me! I wouldn't have clicked as I wasn't expecting any beer in that great can!!! I was about to say, "You just can't beat the Carpathians" but instantly realized there have been so many better Carpathian/Rocky/Red pix that never made it to the top that I'd better shut up.
Cheer up, Larry, have a red(-label) pint! :)
