Birthday Arch

Harry relaxes in the shadows of this big arch

Birthday Arch! The name alone just sounds fun — and the hike to get here was really easy and perfect for a spring or fall day with the family. The hike is about 4 miles round trip from where you park your car off of highway 89.

Birthday Arch was a lot bigger than I expected! Fun!

Lots of cool stuff out here in the middle of nowhere. Like this big rock pillar.

Better than a playground.

Navajo Mountain in the distance. I love being this!

JJ is just a small fry in this big big world

CRazy rock man — looks like a giant or something 🙂
We also had some crazy friends rappel through the middle of the arch. Maybe next time 🙂 Too chicken.

Getting There: Birthday Arch is located off Utah Highway 89 at mile marker 9¾ (17.3 miles from Carl Hayden Visitor Center Lake Powell). Park your car and follow the sandy wash about 1.5 miles or so — you’ll see the big arch in the distance along the western cliffs.

Have fun!
