While we were in Cortez, CO we met a nice family in the pool/hot tub at the hotel. They told us about Wilson Arch, just outside of Arches. It was a "do not miss". SO GLAD WE LISTENED!
As you are driving towards Moab, it is on the right hand side. Just a gorgeous giant arch off the side of the road. You can climb it and chill for awhile. It was kind of a difficult hike to the base of the arch, especially with Peter and his mobility issues. But he did a great job with help, and the boys got their first taste of Arch Country. We spent over an hour here exploring and hiking the arch.

Also on the way to arches is CHURCH ROCK.
