This is part of our Mighty Five Trip 2016. We did 5 parks in 5 days in Utah.

Day 5: Arches National Park. Having already been to Arches we limited ourselves here. The interesting thing is the last time we were at Arches I felt like we did every tail except delicate Arch. that is the craziest thing ever! So that what we did this time. We got to the park somewhat early and headed straight to the trail head. Still had to wait for parking... It was really heating up this day and they had heat warning signs everywhere. I liked this trail, I liked hiking on the slick rock, I like how its cut into the side, I like how you round the corner and then boom, the arch comes into sight. We really enjoyed this, as you can see from the pictures, it was plenty crowded, we were not able to get an arch picture without a stranger in it. still good times though.

On our way back there was a ranger talking with a couple, the lady was sitting on the ground, she was giving her water. They were on their way up, but the ranger was suggesting they turn back. When we got back to the trail head there was another ranger who had set up 3 igloo coolers that I'm sure were full of water so people could fill up. A person had flagged her over and we noticed there was an older couple, the guy was sitting on the ground next to his car, he looked really red. The woman was in the bushes puking. Another hiker who had finished at the same time of us told us we had just ran across another couple who he had to empty his camelback with what he had left to give them some water, they were out. I have a feeling it was a long day for some people that day.
