On the spring 2012 field trip we went to Arches National Park. We saw a ton of beautiful arches and a lot of other cool geology. My favorite arch of the trip was Delicate Arch. It is the same arch you can see on many of the Utah State license plates. I had no idea that the arch was so big. The arch is pretty high up there. You can sit and watch birds flying beneath you. Through the arch you can see the La Sal Mountains. We got to stand underneath the arch and touch it. It was amazing!

other things I have always wondered about. During the field
trip, it was great to actually see the things we had learned
about in class.
