Delicate Arch at Arches National Park in southern Utah. (www.zackfrankphotography.com)
I visited Arches National Park a couple of months ago. My mom and I got up early, before dawn, to hike to a viewpoint for sunrise. What we got instead was a surprise thunderstorm that had us running back to the car, soaked to the bone. We weren’t the only ones.
I’m sad we missed the views, but Arches in heavy rain is just as neat. Because the rock isn’t very absorbent, it only takes a couple minutes for torrential waterfalls and rivers to appear everywhere.
