We did the Park Avenue Trail twice at different times of the day and it felt remarkably different. Love this trail and it offers many opportunities for excellent photo shots!

You MUST stop here when visiting Arches National Park. It is an easy walk from the carpark. The view is spectacular. One of my favourite places in the USA and I am from Australia.
