Park Avenue Trail, Arches National Park – splendidly divine
From Interior’s Facebook feed: The massive sandstone monoliths along Park Avenue Trail at Arches National Park in Utah have imaginative and descriptive names. You won’t regret this easy one-mile hike. Where else can you walk in the shadows of the Tower of Babel, the Organ, the Three Gossips and Sheep Rock?

And a reminder that Utah’s Sen. Mike Lee and Texas’s Sen. Ted Cruz think this land should be developed. Want a condo on that cliff?
I’d prefer to hike it. I’d prefer to know it’s there, available for hiking without development, even when I can’t hike it.
It’s your public land. You get to use it, undeveloped, or you don’t get to use it if the land is developed. We still have a voice, and time to speak.

We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.

I think you’ve seen a few of my others. I love tramping there, and in Canyonlands. Need to rent a Jeep sometime and do the Maze; I’ve never been on the west side.
Much different than usual view of Delicate Arch! Thanks!
Not Park Avenue, but a park icon, from different than normal angle: https://www.flickr.com/photos/43577246@N02/5946894647/in/album-72157627216626148/
Oh, I agree! I had not heard about this but it does not surprise me that one of our Texas senators would support it!
