Navajo Arch - Devil's Garden

Navajo Arch was an awesome hike up, through and over the fins of Devil's Garden.

Once we got past Landscape Arch there was barely a trace of humanity.  Except the one family we were inadvertently racing up the canyon.  They had several small children and one heavy smoker.  LoL so we obviously won the race; but it was still aggravating to hear so much yelling at small children to hurry up; broken up by hacks & coughs from a 2 pack a day smoker who was trying to make the 2.9 mile hike up the canyon to make sunset.

I digress .. it's beautiful.
Trees and fins everywhere mixed with the lack of people make for a great place to eat sandwiches and prep for a crazy walk back at night over fins in the dark.  

If you are going for sunset - I cannot stress enough how important it is to bring headlamps and/or some serious flashlights.  If you're afraid of heights, you will want a light that will clamp onto you so as to have BOTH hands to go down the fin in the dark.   It's definitely an adventure .. (that we've repeated over & over & over ... lol)

I’m Danielle. I’m a mom, I’m 40. My legs are short and I’m out of shape lol but I like to go all the places and do all the things. haha I’m pretty enthusiastic about being out in nature. I live in Moab, Utah - USA, with my 1 husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs and more cats than I am woman enough to admit in public. We love to be outside, hiking, exploring, chasing sunshine and doing the learning, when possible. My family is my entire world wrapped up in four awesome humans and way too many rescue fur babies .. these are our adventures.
