These are photos from the hike to and from Tower Arch. I posted photos of Tower Arch separately.
I took this shot shortly after leaving the parking area. If you look closely, you can see Marilyn and Marie ahead of me.
The hike goes up a steep section of slickrock. Fortunately, slickrock isn’t all that slick – it’s actually quite grippy with the right kind of sole.
We saw this spotted lizard underneath a tree.
This shot was taken from Tower Arch. Monitor and Merrimack Buttes are visible in the far distance.
We hiked through a narrow passage when leaving Tower Arch.
Another view of Monitor and Merrimack Buttes in the distance. I was at maximum zoom (70mm) for this shot.
A look back at Tower Arch.
Tower arch isn’t visible here, but it’s below the large white-capped tower a third of the way over from the right edge of the photo.
Marie marches towards the Marching Men.
Another shot of the Marching Men.
Almost back to the parking area now…
