Hey there! Welcome to my second installment of my Moab Series. Make sure you check out my first post in the series if you haven’t already. In the first post, I discuss Delicate Arch and show some photos from that hike.
In today’s post, I am sharing photos from Devil’s Garden, another hike in Arches. My trip to Moab was a short one. We only had 1 day to spend in the National park, so we went to many different areas and hikes.
MY EXPERIENCE AT DEVIL’S GARDEN
Devil’s Garden is an 8 mile hike, with about 7 natural arches that you can see along the way. My friends and I hiked about 3-4 miles before we had to turn around to head back to campsite. We saw about 5 or 6 arches along our way. The two pictured above are Landscape Arch and Double O Arch.
One of the coolest parts of this hike was the trails were filled with sand. Coming from the coast, walking through sand on a hike brought back so many nostalgic memories, it was glorious. This was my first time experiencing sand outside of the beach so it was a really fun experience.
I highly recommend Devil’s Garden. It is such a diverse and beautiful trail. One minute I was hiking on what are called fin’s, then found myself walking in sand, then found myself surrounds by arches, all while exploring hidden areas filled with what looked like either really tiny trees or large bushes. I felt like I was in a different world, it was amazing.
Thats it for today’s post! Make sure you come back next week for my last post in my Moab series. I will be discussing in more depth my experience playing in the sand at probably my favorite location at the park.
