The Strickens on the trail to the Delicate Arch at Arches National Park.

The Strickens hiked the Fiery Furnace at Arches National Park. When they saw the kissing turtles arch, they had to have their picture taken with it. Unfortunately, it was too high for them to climb up to it. They were really hoping to see a desert tortoise on the trip, but weren’t so lucky.
