Yesterday did one of least visited arches, today one of the most visited. Had a great time. Rain, so few here today.

During our Mighty Five trip, we took some time to do a few things that were not national park related. One of them was doing the Gemini Bridges "Jeep" trail. My excuse was that this was the scenic way into town from Canyonlands. We did this backwards from most, starting on 313 and bringing it into 191. I actually think this is the better way because you get the boring dirt road section out of the way first, then you end with the cool shelf road. My truck had no problem with this trail, not sure I would have needed 4wd, but you for sure need high clearance. It's pretty tame by Moab standards I could see the wash crossing being a different story if it had been rainy.

The Hike: The hike to the bridges is short, probably a mile round trip at best. The BLM has a parking area and a descriptive sign. The bridges are pretty cool. at first it seems just like a hole in the ground but once you get close the bridges come into view. You will see a trail down under the bridges, it is not accessed from here, there is another road and hike that will get you there.
