I wandered around in several slot canyons off of Blue Pools Wash. I was looking for Blue Pools Arch, which is supposed to be up the third slot in a row of slots, according to an old local guy, who probably hadn't set foot in there for years. But it seemed there were way more than three slots. I found that the arch is marked on my GPS, but I still couldn't find it. I tried plugging in a "go to" for the location of the arch shown on the GPS map. I'll try hiking out there again after asking my coworkers, etc.

I'm new to the Jeeping, also, and was out there alone, and not having made arrangements to be found if lost or hurt. So, when I got to a very sandy wash I ended up backing the Jeep up a hill to get to a good parking spot because I was unsure if I could make it through the wash and I didn't have a shovel or any other implement of destruction. I am pretty good at backing up, thankfully.

Ever since arriving in Page I have been actively trying to make new acquaintances here, and joined an online hiking meet up group. So, I am sure eventually I will learn to drive the Jeep across a sandy wash AND eventually I will find Blue Pools Arch. (There are photos of it on Google Earth. Looks pretty substantial!)
