Decided to do Christmas a little different this year! We caught a beautiful sunrise on the way to our destination and it set the tone for a great long weekend. We parked at our campsite which ended up cutting a nice amount of mileage from our hike! We made our way down the canyon and found an alternate path to our destination which ended up being much better than anticipated. There was some pesky bushwhacking (foxtail and cat claw), but otherwise we arrived unscathed. The clouds couldn’t have been more perfect that day and we hung around and leisurely explored the arches and surrounding area for a long time. We took a bunch of photos, had some snacks and checked out some cool alcoves around the area. Once we had our fill, we headed back the way we came and had fun admiring all the cool geology in the canyon. The hike ended up taking way less time than anticipated so we ended up getting a tad bored at camp. There was a bit of a sketchy section of road getting down to an adjacent road near our campsite and we ended up climbing up some rocks for a birds eye view of some rookie truck drivers burning their tires out trying to get up. One driver even had to tow the other truck up this hill. :lol: We ended up taking a little stroll up the road, white claw in hand, to watch the sunset. The sunset was a little meh, but we did find another cool cave! We camped that night and packed up the next morning early-ish. James drives a Subaru so the road was a bit of a concern given the rookie drivers totally tore it up for a good 45 minutes. We made it up on the second attempt with zero issues, lol. :y: This just proves that it’s really SO much more about the driver than it is the road; we did appreciate the entertainment though. 8)
