Hualapai Arch has formed its massive 137-foot span in the basaltic Black Mountains east of Bullhead City, Arizona. Here it dwarfs NABS members Bud and Evelyn Johnson. Although large and easy to reach, paradoxically it is difficult to find. That's because its opening is not visible from the dirt road that winds through Secret Pass Wash only a few yards from the arch. It's a short, but steep climb from the road to the arch. As always, don't attempt to visit this arch in extreme summer heat without plenty of water! It is not shown on the 7.5' topo map Secret Pass, AZ 1967. Full directions to reach the arch were published in the April 1996 issue of SPAN, for which this was the cover photo. Photo by David Brandt-Erichsen.
