The park service is pretty restrictive as to where you can ride in Arches NP. So I find my arches in other places.

That looks like a giant stone man with a really long right arm and his head turned slightly toward his right shoulder. (You should see what I can find in ink blots!)
It is really beautiful....

This is the easier way in and out of the Roost Area. Its a big sand hill that goes from the canyon floor to the top. It's still a pretty good work out for the horses to scramble up

Once I get some good feet under my horse and get him legged up we are going to have to go out there. Maybe next spring. Thanks for sharing the pictures. What a great ride!

Wow, what a great and adventurous ride. I'll ride darn near any trail around here -- I haven't found one yet I won't do except unknown water crossings (due to very sticky clay mud in the area), but dang! I don't know if I'd be willing to tackle some of those narrow ups and downs. I'd love to see them and judge if I could though!

Amazing stuff.

What were the daytime and nighttime temperatures like?

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Find me a winning lottery ticket while you are at it.

Temps depend on the season. The last week of April when we went it was 70-75 for the high and about 40 at night. The week before a cold front came across and the highs were low 50s

I was near that area for Labor Day in 2007 and it was 103 for the day time high and 75 at night. I suspect in January you could see some 0 temps during a cold spell

It's high desert, around 5000 foot elevation. So temps do fluctuate.

I would most definitely love to go there and ride but that will have to wait a long long time being as I live in North Carolina... That would be a long haul with the horses. Beautiful pictures btw

That looks like a very awesome place to ride, except that climb through the rocks, *shivers*.
