Man and I have managed to reach the road to Grosevnor Arch. It is 11 miles from the entrance to Kodachrome Basin State Park to the Arch. Unpaved! Also, narrow, hilly, and totally scenic.
Within minutes of "hitting the dirt" we see these signs, I think they just want to remind you:
And, the road:
Below: about mid photo is a white streak, it is a washout area, when it rains, it fills with water, running water.
Below, photo does not show this real well either, but this section of road was rather steep and caused a bit of spinning wheels, spitting gravel and sand, slip sliding away, just a little.
And, when you get to the top, this is what you see. Ya, WOW.
Below, what went up, must go down.
Below, more downhill, and a slow turn, believe me 15 MPH was not too fast.
Below, still a few miles to go - -
We are almost to Butler Valley, full of cattle, grazing right along the road, one must slow down or you will be paying for a side of beef.
Yes, we will reach the arch, in just a couple more miles, I promise - -
