Hiking Devils Garden – Landscape Arch

Sabrina took the helm as itinerary agent, choosing the exploration of Devils Garden.  Like the Windows, formations abound along the trail, which can range from 1.6 to 7.2 miles.  Feeling extra energetic, she decided that we should go for it:  7.2 miles of fantastic views, amazing wonders and interesting trail transitions, the first being Landscape Arch.

Located .8 miles from the trailhead is Landscape Arch.  According to the National Park Service:

With a light opening measured at 306 feet (93.3 meters), Landscape Arch has the longest span of any arch in North America.

Though immensely impressive, Landscape Arch merely whetted our appetites for more.  Around the 1.5 mile mark, this trail becomes a bit more primitive, and thus, challenging.  Tapping into our extra reserve of tenacity was a must, especially when the trail became more steep and narrow….

…but it was worth every step!
