After a very long day of travel, cancelled flights and a fair amount of angst, I find myself in a truly wonderful place. What you see here is Balanced Rock in Arches National Monument with the milky way providing some spectacular light. I arrived here just moments before the group I’ll be with this week, fresh off a day of air travel and a two hour drive with just enough time to dig out my gear and make the short hike to where this was taken. Talk about sensory overload. I was able to see just enough in the waning daylight to see what a magical place this is. The best part is for the next week, we’ll be exploring many more of Utah’s natural wonders. This is just a taste!
