My initial plan was to leave in the middle of the night and arrive at Arches gate to grab a first come first serve site at Devils Gardens. I called Arches yesterday and was told they no longer offer the first come sites. Everything is reservation only, and all the sites were booked...of course.
I consider the Devils Garden the most scenic spot I have ever camped at...unbelievable views.
