Arches National Park: Where Adventure and Beauty Collide

Durango, CO to Salt Lake City, UT

Goooood morning! Today we hit the road bright and early on our way to Salt Lake City! Thank you to our luggage bus loaders this morning! We first stopped at the ‘Hole N The Rock’ rest stop that had many attractions, gifts, and snacks.

Next, we stopped at the famous Arches National Park and had a beautiful scenic picnic for lunch where we took a photo with Marty, our awesome bus driver.

Everyone loved the scenery of the arches, so we took lots of pictures and videos!

Later on, we arrived at the hotel in Salt Lake City to get ready for dinner at Buca di Beppo, which was DELICIOUS. Everyone had salad and a variety of pasta dishes at the Italian restaurant such as fettuccine alfredo, spaghetti, and chicken parmesan. After dinner we headed back to hotel for the grand reveal of who was on our volleyball teams for the volleyball tournament that will go on at the ranch. Everyone was brain storming fabulous themes and team names. After that everyone was ready for a good nights rest in preparation for the ranch. Today was a great day!
