We got a pretty early start for this hike, so we didnt see any other hikers until we were on our way back. It was still pretty cold when we started, probably close to freezing.

The arch really does blend into the cliff behind it since it's so close to it. We checked out the "ruins" underneath, which now contain some fake looking pictographs. I followed the trail thru the ruins and made my way up to the top. We decided to not try to take the kids up to the top and I think it was the right call. The trail at the top gets pretty close to the edge and the arch is pretty narrow the whole way across, compared to Devil's Bridge, which only has one really narrow section.

Along the faint trail past the ruins, we found a new age hippie book titled "Sedona, Journey of the Heart" or something like that. I wanted to leave it in the trail register but my wife decided to keep it so she could read it and see what it's about. :roll:

We decided not to hike the rest of the flat trail along the canyon since we were headed to Honanki and then home.
