This hike has been on my list for a few years. Denny suggested this over a hike I brought up, that's kinda long. We hit the road at 0630 and were hiking in the chilly morning air before long. After hiking the three plus miles to the turn off to the arch, I can see why people just wade the river as a shortcut instead.

The off trail up to the arch wasn't bad so we decided to go up the ravine and explore up top. We made it up and over to the Sky Island which has outstanding views. We tried to descend to the NW in a couple spots but couldn't find a reasonable route off the cliffs. So we ended going back up and around to where we had first ascended, and headed back down.

We saw quite a few birds including a bald eagle. Wild flowers are starting to show! Poppies, blue dicks, fairy dusters, fiddlenecks...

Fun hike. Thanks Mr Turtle!
