On Saturday, November 9th, David and I head back to Sheets Draw in Capitol Reef National Park to look for Sheets Draw Arch again.
Along the way we stopped for a few photographs in Scipio.
Another stop at the Fruita historic schoolhouse.
This time David and I simply start hiking up the Sheets Draw from the Notom and Bullfrog road end of the canyon. From the road, the sandy wash soon becomes a deep canyon with sheer cliff walls.
Some muddy stretches, some narrows, some small choke stones to climb over but after 3.4 miles we turn the corner and find a large natural arch hanging on the north cliff wall.
So the Sheets Draw Arch was not a myth after all!
