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.
      Archie 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.
        The coordinates for the arch are - N37° 7.640' & W111° 58.022'.

Baby Arch 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'.
