Lexington Arch

As a general rule, we avoid gravel and dirt roads, even without the rig. But the Lexington Arch at Great Basin National Park was intriguing enough to brave the long…

… and narrow road:

Our one-ton dually took some swipes from low-hanging and far-reaching branches along this road!

The trail to the Arch was mostly uphill, but the views were stunning.

If only I could get these darn hiking poles to adjust!

After about an hour of hiking, we arrived at the lookout.

We studied the trail that seemed to lead closer to the Arch, but were content with the view from here, so we kicked back to relax a little while before heading back down.

After all, there was plenty of entertainment to occupy our attention, courtesy of these Cliff Chipmunks, who were as curious about us as we were about them:

Though we spotted these tracks…

…the chipmunks were the only animals we saw. Of course, we never know how many animals see us!
