Ascent Trip Report

We were a little short on time, so hiked up the Jeep Rd rather than the actual trail as a guide said it was quicker. We had to park on Vultee Arch Rd as we arrived around noon and parking lot is small and full. The hike was easy until we got towards the end and there were large stone "stairs" and some scrambling. We lucked out in that the arch wasn't that crowded and we could each go out for a couple of minutes for photos without anyone else in the photos or getting annoyed. We stopped at the lookout on the way down near the arch and that turned out better as we knew what to look for and could spot the arch (it's tucked back). Round trip took about three hours and I stopped a lot to photograph many views, desert flowers and a gecko.
