Moab, Utah & Arches National Park


Petra and I have been doing a lot of traveling this summer, with even more to come. Last week, we met up with the Fishback clan in Moab for some summer fun and hiking beauty. Southern Utah always blows me away with its impressive, majestic red rock. Arches helped me tick off #4 for me of Utah's "Big 5" National Parks. We spent two days doing short hikes with the kids, then on the third day, Nana watched all the kids while the rest of the adults did the "Delicate Arch" hike. Delicate Arch is the arch you see on many Utah license plates. Unlike many of the other arches in the park, it stands alone without much else around it, making it look very impressive and a bit mind-boggling. 

When I first became a Fishback, I was not a hiker, but I quickly learned that if I wanted to remain a Fishback, I needed to become one. It took a few years, but I can honestly say that I love hiking now. It's such a pure and rewarding way to appreciate nature and give thanks to the gorgeous world we live on.

Aside from hiking, we also had lots of good ole summer fun in the yard of the house we were staying in with a slip n' slide, snow cones, and a lake not too far away.

At the point when North Kingstown was consolidated in 1674, regardless it had the zone of the Narragansett County incorporated into it, enveloping the present towns of North and South Kingstown. It was just until 1722 and 1723 that both towns got to be discrete. The region of North Kingstown is known for its common harbor and shorelines bound with resorts and delight pontoons.
