Took the group through this area, drove them through the arches, up to the gate keepers and so one. What a fun time

Have you ever come around the corner and seen a helicopter on the road?

We used this trail to get to go run the Odessa Doran loop and to explore the Mud Hills. It's pretty bumpy but nothing challenging. Oh, and the arches are certainly worth checking out.

Did a quick drive through the other day as I headed to the the harder trail. One of the camping areas was packed with like 20 RV's
