Two best friends, Lauren, a fellow on the entertainment team for Huffington Post, and Kellie an assistant for Alain Pinel realtors & O’dette mortgage group decided to take a road trip across the United States shortly after they had both received their undergraduate degrees.  Although the adventurous duo had experienced many states (road-tripped all the way from New Jersey to California), a favorite destination of theirs was Arches National Park in Utah.

Lauren described herself as originally not being the most outdoorsy person, but explained that it “All changed when my friend Kellie and I stopped in Arches National Park in Utah this November. The landscape is truly unlike any other in the world. There are thousands of natural red rock formations throughout the park, but the big “must see” is the 1.5 mile hike to the Delicate Arch. Kellie and I were blown away by its size and beauty. I’m truly at a loss for words to ever do Arches justice.”

In addition, a short drive from Arches National Park and a nice way to end your day is at Moab Brewery a great place for “cheap burgers and craft beers.”

More information and photos to come, but in summary, this was one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to.  I have only positive things to say; the vibe, people, and landscapes are amazing.  Sometimes you cannot describe things in words, rather you must experience it to understand.
