After our morning at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands, we headed out of the park and into Moab, a nearby city here in Utah. I wanted to find a place for breakfast/lunch that offered us a power outlet so I could charge my batteries before heading into Arches. It's SO fun following the inner guidance and having exactly what you need show up over and over and over. We pulled into a Denny's and sat down right at one of the booths with a power jack available. Our waiters were awesome and one even provided me with a pocket knife that was a perfect fit so that I could screw the cap back on one of my camera batteries. Shooting on this trip is making me consider upgrading to a 1D2n so that I get better battery life, need to carry fewer heavy batteries, can shoot at high ISOs with less noise, can shoot long exposures with no pink corners, have a screen that's more visible in the sunlight, and can shoot in an SD card as well. Megapixels doesn't really make much of a difference for me and my shooting style, but the other things do.
Anyways, when we got to Arches, we REALLY liked it. There's so much cool scenery there, amazing rock formations and structures, way cool petrified dunes, sandy multi-colored snow-striped ridges, balancing rocks like this one pictured here, and over 2,000 arches. From what I understand, this park has the highest concentration of natural sandstone arches anywhere in the world. It is an amazing park, smaller than Canyonlands, but really really awesome.
