Fiery Furnace

By Ann Driggers

After a morning ski and a big turkey dinner, the recent Thanksgiving weekend found us enjoying the desert once again. Given the dearth of snow in the mountains we headed out to the Moab area with a large group of friends and set up camp just north of town in the Klondike Bluffs. Although our typical MO for Moab is mountain biking, of which we did plenty, three days allowed us to get some hiking in too. We picked off some of the classics such as Negro Bill Canyon and Corona Arch which are quite amazing in their own right, but it was Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park which was the standout hike of the trip.

The Fiery Furnace is an area in Arches National Park which is a maze of fins and canyons carved out of red sandstone. Although distance wise the hike we took was not long we spent around three hours inside exploring nooks and crannies, slithering in and out of narrow slots and gazing at the fantastical shapes of the rock above us.

We hiked in the afternoon so in the depths of the canyons the light was difficult but here are some of the best shots of the day:

If you ever find yourself in the Moab area I can highly recommend this hike. Be warned that it is extremely popular and is subject to a permit system. Although we had little issue in getting in it was the end of November and considered the 'off season'. Information can be found on the Arches National Park website.
