Colonnade Arch (Five-Hole Arch): A tough place to visit
|Colonnade Arch shows 3 of its 5 holes|
I began hiking early in the morning and was deceived by the landscape as well as other trails in the area. I hiked down towards the edge of the cliff and did not find my destination. Looking around in all directions, I found it high on a cliff above and to the east. I hiked back up and up and up. You must be above this arch and then descend to it. This can only be reached by downclimbing from above. The problem is that you can't see if you're in the right place. As a result, I down climbed multiple areas without finding this. After about one hour of searching, I finally found the right niche to climb down and visit this special place.
Knowing what I know now, I could find it much easier but the first visit is not easy.
