Archie & Baby Arch
N 37° 7.640' & W 111° 58.022' Here
are 2 arches that we drove past for many years before we noticed them.
They are about 1/4 mile apart along highway 89 along the passing lane
for the Coxcomb.
is the first and it is named so, because one day the
light was just right to catch our eye and we spotted this arch as we
went past it at 65mph. We found a safe place to do a turn
around and went back to make sure we actually did see an arch. We liked
it so well
that we put together a Geocache and hid it at the arch. We named the
cache Archie due to it being hidden at the arch. If you wish to visit
the arch up close and spot the cache, feel free to sign the logbook
that is enclosed in the cache, just leave it there for the
next person to find and enjoy. The arch is on the north side of the
highway, but the parking area is to the south side where there is a
pull-off for parking.
coordinates for the arch are - N37° 7.640' & W111° 58.022'.
is the second arch in this area and it is so named due to the fact that
it is not very big. This arch is about 1/4 mile west of Archie and
there is a place to park at the West end of the guardrail. It too is on
the north side of the highway. Use extra caution if you choose to park
and walk over to this arch, since the parking area is on a curve and
requires extra care when pulling on or off the highway. The coordinates for Baby
Arch are N37° 7.243' & W111° 58.250'.
