Tibbett Arch
     From where the Ernie’s country route crosses the wash, hike up-canyon for about 2.8 miles. Note that at about 1.5 miles up the canyon, take the right fork (the left fork leads to Wall Runner Arch). You will see an open canyon area on your right (east). You will also see the sweeping grace of Tibbett Arch at UTM 12S 587173E, 4223650N, WGS 84. If you go farther in for a photo of Tibbett Arch, be careful to use existing paths or drainages to avoid trampling the cryptobiotic soils. While there, look to the north for Purlin Arch.
