Morning Glory Natural Bridge

Yesterday, I was tagged by Bex over at Adventures of the Grigg Boys. My mission was to go to my picture folder and pick the sixth picture from the sixth folder. In doing so, I found this photo from our camping trip in April:


This is the south-ish side of Morning Glory Natural Bridge near Moab, Utah, looking up from underneath. The full span of this arch is 243 feet, so that gives you an idea of why my camera could only grab part of it as I stood below.

And the other side:
One of these days, I'm gonna get me a fish-eye lens so I can take full length pictures of arches from directly underneath.

I'm supposed to tag six people to do this meme, but as usual, I'm a rebel. If you want to be tagged, go for it. Please leave me a comment if you decide to do it so I can be sure to stop by your place and take a peek.

Mission accomplished!

Wow, what a cool spot! I'll have to add Utah to my wish list of future vacation destinations.

You gotta come here, Jen. There's a good reason why I've chosen to live in Utah! :)

6th picture in the 6th folder. We're just one digit shy of the number of the beast. Maybe you should repost this on Saturday.

Cool pic! My parents vacation in Utah a lot, pretty much just for the scenery. It's also on my list. I think it's after Nepal.

Very cool! We really do live in a cool place! My family is for sure going down there this fall. Seriously can't wait.

Wait, yes I can. I don't wanna run summer out of here too fast. But I am excited!
