This seems to be a common question but I did not want to hijack other persons thread.
We will be in Arches for a full day mid May. We are both relatively fit, decent hikers (avid divers/snorkelers more so). Anyway... I do have a bad knee(s) from of course - hiking!
We would like to start as early as possible. It may be impossible to get a permit day before.
What is best thing we can do in the cooler hours of the morning?
For lunch, we would to drive everywhere we will not be able to walk best we can - taking a picnic somewhere along the way (suggestions on this tour and stop pls).
What is best for the sunset? Seems like both FF and Delicate Arch are recommended.
I guess my plan thus far is to simply do FF by ranger tour in AM or set off earlier if we can score a permit.
Break. Drive. Lunch. Rest.
Delicate Arch in late afternoon - what time is sunset mid May anyone??
These hikes do not look to be kind on my knee(s).
Stupid question, but any showers now in the park?
