Rattlesnake Arches the Long Way

31 May

Today we decided to take the long Rattlesnake Arches hike. Roughly 15 miles.

We got started at 7am, but next time I think we’ll try to get to the trailhead at 6am as it got kind of hot for the last hour of the hike.

I thought these guys were pretty.

Always beautiful scenery.

We actually didn’t get lost on this hike, so that’s a plus. At one point we stopped to talk to a couple of people and they suggested we climb up the last arch and hike the return trip over the top of the arches. Alrighty then, we’ll give that a try.

So we reached the last arch (the top pic is from the lower trail, the bottom pic is from above/behind the arch).

I was a little out of my comfort zone climbing up the arch. It’s not so much about fearing heights, but more about my healthy respect for gravity. I made it though and I was really glad I did because the views from the upper trail were uh~mazing.

This was a nice place to stop for lunch.

It was a lovely way to spend a Friday morning/afternoon.
