David and I headed south to Zion National Park for three days of arch hunting, taking pictures and just enjoying the area after a long winter. One day we spent hiking up Gifford Canyon and trying to get into Hepworth Wash to see the natural arch reportedly located there. Third attempt at Hepworth Wash – no joy. We could barely crawl back to the vehicle that evening. Luckily we only had to go back to Springdale for the night.

In fact, after three days of Arch Hunting in that part of Utah — no arches to report at all.
