Tracie and I did this hike earlier in the week, but we were not able to locate the cave near the Mitten Ridge saddle, so we wanted to go back and try again. I took a few friends out there with me this time, so we had a small group.

We had better luck this time and we were able to find the cave and crawl into it. The opening is small, and once you were in you had to crawl in the dusty ground for a short distance. Then the cave opened up into a small room that is 8 feet to 9 feet high, and I'd guess 15 feet X 25 feet. It's not something that you see everyday on a hike!

We also went up to Window Rock again and explored a couple of the small arches that are beyond Elephant Arch. Two people in the group climbed up to the top of Window Rock, but that climb had more exposure than I wanted today so I did not climb up to the top of the rock.
