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.

Ann and E fashioned a boat out a dried out avocado shell. The boat floated all right and did not take in water, however, it didn’t do to well with the weight of either gal. In the end, they let the boat float away.

Stricken Ann and Stricken E went hiking with Jen and Ashley at Pinnacles National Monument (the west entrance). It was really cool. They got to hike through a cave where bats live and they hiked all the way up the mountains onto the pinnacles.




The hike at El Morro National Monument was by far the coolest adventure. The hike was two miles round trip and had an elevation gain of 250 feet. The bottom picture is down on the ground when they first started the hike. The trail went all the way up on the giant rock behind the Strickens (the one behind them that goes off the picture). The top picture was taken up there on that giant rock.
