We found great contrasting views by visiting the park early and later in the day. Attached are the sunset views with deep shadows and brilliant golden browns.

This was one of my favorite hikes in the park. Our family did it right before sunset and there was hardly anyone else on the trail so we had the whole place to ourselves and it was beautiful.

The trail to the Park Avenue rocks is very easy and well worth the effort. Not sure I understand why it has the name Park Avenue but the red rock formations were pretty neat to see and worth a few minutes before moving on to the arches.

The Park Avenue Trail is easy and best in the early morning before the mobs get there or the heat climbs. The formations are mind-boggling sculptures by Mother Nature; taking centuries to do her art. The startling red stone against a cobalt blue sky makes for a stunning day of photography.
