Instead of going an a scheduled/guided EJS trail, today we decided to do our own thing. We drove up just north of town and headed on the Copper Canyon trail. Pretty basic trail. We thought we got lost on a different trail, because it got a little harder than we expected, but it turns out we were on the right trail all along.
We follow Copper Canyon north until it joined up with the highway. We had planned it out in advance to enter Arches National Park, so we pre-purchased passes online. Arches has a 4×4 only road/trail that leads to a couple arches that you can’t get to on the paved roads, and would be quite a hike on foot.
It was cool visiting a part of the park that most people don’t get to see.
