Hiking around Arches this year was beautiful. The heat was insane, but it was a dry heat. Being accustomed to the South's soupy swamp heat made the desert feel practically refreshing. I'm not trying to make it sound like I was as cool as a cucumber - I drank at least a gallon of water without needing the facilities… yeah.
It was strange to look up and think "This is ROCK. In a tiny little bridge over my head."
