Starting from Dome Mountain Trailhead, went over the Blue Ridge past the rock house to the Twin Arches (Trumpet Arch and Echo Arch), as planned. It was such a nice morning, I went South to the Keyhole Arch and the Green Thumb. After that, I meandered back to the trailhead. I'm still sorting out how I got place to place; there was a lot of off-trail exploration.

Saw a fox up on the hillside near the arches, and my off trail wandering paid off as I came across a whole family of javelinas including babies :D
