David and I drove down to Zion National Park again to try the Hepworth Wash hike and climb. When we finally climbed to the top of Gifford Canyon overlooking Hepworth Wash, we choose to descend one of several drainages, hoping that this one will allow us access into the wash.

Our choice turns out to be a dead-end also. Exhausted we trudge back down the mountain.

Strike two for Hepworth Wash Arch… but we’ll be back!
