Arches National Park in bloom: LAPC

In early May 2017, we visited the national parks in Utah. With temperatures in the 90s, we didn’t exactly avoid the desert’s heat, but we were happy to see Arches National Park in bloom.

These plants grow well under the hot, sunny conditions. Here are a few of the plants we saw in bloom. Some are big and bold; others are small and subtle.

  1. We had plans to visit the Utah parks this past May. Needless to say it was canceled. We’ve rescheduled for next year. We are hopeful and looking forward to seeing what the parks have to offer. Nice photos!!
