Wednesday - Windows and Delicate Arch

The evening before, while we drove through the park, John and I strategized over the order of what we were going to do and when in the morning. We decided to hike the smaller Windows and the Double Arch tail before doing the strenuous hike up to Delicate Arch, and it worked out quite nicely. So Wednesday morning we hit the coffee shop from the night before for breakfast, and then I got stamps from the post office for all the postcards. We filled up on water at the Visitor's Center right when we got into the park and we were set.

Snow Day!

Yesterday, Jet's school district had a snow day in anticipation of the 6-8 inches of snow that was supposed to fall here. Given that the temps were in the high 60's the day before, most of the snow that fell on the sidewalks and streets melted and all the roads were clear. But the snow did fall for most of the day.

Jet summed it up, however, when he said, "It's no fair! Getting a snow day, but not getting enough snow to even sled in!"
