    Yeah, the initial drop into La Verkin Creek is over 1,000 vertical feet. You will hit this on the way out, when you are most tired, and in the heat of the day. Take a water purifier to refill!

    Kolob Arch is an amazing arch and a good, although difficult, hike. Be prepared for slogging through some sandy areas and for a good workout. Spring and Fall are preferable - I would not do this hike in the heat of Summer. This is an area within Zion National Park where you can find some good solitude fairly easily, and lots of rattlesnakes as well. The hike to Bear Trap Canyon about 2 miles past the arch is also awesome. The whole Kolob area is a rare Gem within Zion National Park for those who want to get away from the crowds.

    I ride my horses into Kolob arch once in a while. Usually in November when it is much cooler. Never in the summer heat.

    So a picture of the Kolob Arch would be nice. Especially as the entire article is about the Kolob arch.
    Just visited the Delicate Arch and it was amazing!
