Ice, Ice, Baby

A hiker carefully traverses a portion of the Devils Garden Primitive Trail near Private Arch in Arches National Park. Winter hiking in Arches National Park can be a treacherous combination of ice, snow and steep slickrock. Many trails have sections that may be impassable without the use of traction aids. Even as temperatures rise, trail sections in shady areas may still be icy. [Photo by Neal Herbert/ Courtesy National Park Service]
