Miriam’s Trip Blog: This is the Fiery Furnace Hike

September 9th, 2012 · by Cyndi · 9 Comments

This is Landscape Arch.  It was a very long and hard hike to it.

This is the sign for the tour of the Fiery Furnace.  *chol!*  It’s a three hour long tour, including stops.  There was lots of rock climbing, lots of challenges.  It was hard for my mom, but so easy for me.  I didn’t get a bit tired but my mom was so tired she could barely walk.

This is Ranger Jon and me.  We’re going to climb under that tiny arch.

This is Skull Arch.  We took this from our camera on super vivid colors.  That’s why it’s red.

This is Surprise Arch.  It’s called Surprise Arch because it’s such a big surprise.  And it’s an arch.  We had to go into a cave to see it and sit on some rocks and Ranger Jon told us a story about his life.

Stay tuned for our next blog post about going to New Mexico and stopping in Moab and staying at a hotel.

    That’s so cool! I love it! What did you see when you went under that hole? That is so beautiful, worth the hike I am sure.

    The Fiery Furnace is interesting and beautiful! You’re a good hiker and I’m impressed by your Mom’s hiking too.

    So, did you finally get to see some stars and the Milky Way…?

    I must say that arch looks like a complete surprise to me. Skull arch looks very Halloween-y. I knew you would do well on the hike and am glad you had fun.

    Miriam,
    That is so pretty it’s hard to believe it exists in real life! It looks more like a picture someone made up in a book. Enjoy it and take more pictures!

    Miriam says: Yes we did some of the Milky Way.

    Oh, my knees are aching just looking at those rocks and hills. You’re so spry!

    When I was a kid your age, I was up and down all sorts of hills and rocky places. Glad you can be, too.
