This tip may seem a bit outside some peoples comfort zones. i recommend that you suck it up and try it.

When visiting Arches under a bright moon I always.hike up to Delicate Arch at sunset. The light at this time of day is at it's best and if it is hot this is a great time to bet the heat.

We then wait till the moon rises and then we hike by moon light back to our car. This is a relly fantastic way to enjoy the hike.

This trail is easy to follow and the lower light of the moon is just great.
