The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.-Thornton Wilder
The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Arches National Monument
Most of our visit was under grey dismal skies, not photo friendly. Occasionally the heavens opened up and I was able to take advantage of the light.
Landscape Arch at 290 feet across is the longest span in the park. Several years ago a slab broke free from underneath and since then then trail that led beneath the arch has been closed. Considering some of the other trails I was on, having some rock fall down on me would be the least of my concerns.
