This is another that's been on my list for awhile. With most of my hiking in the last 7 months being at elevation to escape the orb, the weather finally made a turn for the better allowing this one.

First, I would not take a passenger car on the El Paso Natural Gas Road. Sandy entry and exits from the numerous small washes will have you bottoming out your car.

A chance of rain on the day had us starting under cool blue skies. The first goal on the day was to hit up the natural arches to the south and west of the TH. We followed the Ben Avery Trail for awhile, before heading crosscountry to access the arches.
The theme of the day is navigating your way the best you can, across the MANY washes. A short climb to the Arches and we took a break in them. [ youtube video ]

Next cross country again to check out the Indian Spring Petroglyphs. There is quite an abundance of glyphs in at least 2 different areas that we saw. As others had reported, the Indian Spring Spring Box has not seen water for quite some time. The large bedrock area that others had reported holding water, was bone dry.

Back on the Ben Avery Trail for awhile, until going off trail to search out the other arch on the Topo. Navigating the washes theme was still in effect. This arch (from our viewpoint) was not as impressive. Of course in hindsight, after checking out the 2018 description, route and photos from @Metalrunner, this arch is pretty darn impressive when viewed up close.

All in all a very enjoyable day the the Eagletails
