Day 5 – Rocky Mountaineer
After re-boarding the Rocky Mountaineer, we pass the
babbling waters of Parachute Creek and towering Mount Logan as we
approach the red rock formations of Utah. Arriving in Moab, we
check into our hotel. We then make our way into Arches National
Park, home to over 2,000 otherworldly-looking stone arches. Here,
naturally occurring sandstone structures frame distant snow-topped
mountains and arid desert scrubland, and, as we explore, we learn
about how these 65-million-year-old arches came to be. The rocks
create a maze of orange-hued twists and turns, which we navigate as
we see highlights such as the 'Balanced Rock', the 'Devil's Garden'
and the 'Delicate Arch'. Tonight, we enjoy a special 'cowboy
cookout' dinner. Overnight Moab.
