Fisher Towers Panorama outside of Arches National Park

Fisher Towers Panorama outside of Arches National Park

With each successive trip, I find that I do more and more research in preparation for our trip. Most if not all of the national parks have natural history associations that are a great source of information on the parks. You can get books, calendars, maps, hiking guides and DVD’s to help you learn about learn about the park’s scenery, wildlife and any other area of interest you may have. I have a pretty good sense of the place before we arrive, and it helps me look forward to the trip.

I naturally look for spectacular scenery, and discovered the Fisher Towers area in one book. It is outside of Arches National Park, in the Moab, UT area, and apparently not widely known, as we had the place to ourselves for most of the evening. As the sun was setting, a local photo guide brought some other tourists in to do some shooting. I have to say that I was rather proud to have found the place on my own without paying someone hundreds of dollars to get me there! As you can see, Craig was able to take a beautiful panorama of the spot!
