July 21 - Yellow Cat Road & Arches
From Utah Route 128 just north of Dewey
Along Yellow Cat Road, I did encounter many abandoned uranium mines, as well as the remains of the old Moab stagecoach.
Entering Arches National Park the back way (from the northwest), I took the rough sandy road (the toughest track I'd encountered yet on my entire trip!) up to Klondike Bluffs to see Tower Arch and then southeast to Eye of the Whale Arch.
Returning to pavement, I hiked the slickrock trail (marked by cairns) to the Delicate Arch viewpoint, and then headed over to the arches of the Windows Section just before sunset.
