We never did find the arch. We didn't have the GPS file for this and after a couple miles in the rain was getting heavier, so we turned around. In fact we got out of the canyon and followed a cow path back to the parking area. Now looking at the GPS and my GPS we were just about there, but didn't see an arch. With the lower AEG listed, the arch must have been down in another side canyon and we were up on the hill.

Quick "get-out-of-the-house" type hike, since the wife wasn't feeling well. I originally wanted to hit up Spencer Trail today, but the wife wanted a flatter hike, since she's not completely over the stomach bug. Got over to the arch view, but turned back as she was starting to take a turn for the worse. :( Hopefully this bug doesn't linger all break.

Hiked in from the wrong trailhead. Got the truck stuck. Got a late start. All in all, an okay hike, but didn't make it to the arch. Almost back to the highway, a flight of three Apache helicopters roared overhead, about 300 feet off the ground. Only heard them coming maybe three seconds before we saw them; no wonder they can sneak up on the enemy!
