Negro Bill Canyon & Morning Glory Arch
Arches National Park
This gallery is from Negro Bill Canyon which leads to Morning Glory Arch. While technically just outside of Arches NP, this trail provides a wonderful respite from the heat and follows water virtually the entire time. Dense vegetation provides shade from the summer heat and blooming desert cactus can be found everywhere.
