I tried a mid-week trip to Moab Utah so I could be in Arches National Park when the 2002 Winter Olympic torch relay visits Delicate Arch. However, at 5 AM that morning I discover only a select few are invited to see the ceremony at Delicate Arch. (Don’t they know who I am?!)

I tried for some pictures at Double Arches but the torch only visited the North Window area just across the parking lot.

Oh well. I’ll just have to wait for the next World Winter Olympics that comes to Utah.

I drove around the park taking winter pictures including a short hike in the snow to the area behind Double Arch to get a picture of Ribbon Arch. (I’m really going to have to find a way to climb up to Ribbon Arch one of these days.)

Soon I had to head for home again. These winter days are really short!
