Lunch Spot Arch, Dessert Domes, Bonal Springs Rim and One Toe Ridge, Vermilion Cliffs NM, AZ

Share Me:


After our trip to Spider Butte the day before, Claudia and me met at the Condor Observation Point along House Rock Valley Road to explore a new location along the southwestern rim of the Vermilion Cliffs NM. Besides that new location, which I named as Dessert Domes, we also visited Lunch Spot Arch (a name, we have chosen some time ago), the rim above Bonal Springs (with the big Anasazi ruin) and One Toe Ridge. This was a nice day trip along the southwestern side of the Vermilion Cliffs.

Hi, my name is Christian. Since years, my wife and me are spending our vacation in the southwest of the USA. At the beginning, we had been visiting a lot of national parks, but after some time, we started to explore also areas off pavement. We started with the Coyote Buttes South region and White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs NM. Over years, we explored almost the complete Vermilion Cliffs NM and visited also a lot of other areas in Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah. Especially the Moab area and the San Rafael Swell are our favorites. But also the Rubicon trail in the High Sierras was very impressing. In 2015, we had been the first time in the Kingman, AZ area. There are a lot of outstanding 4WD trails, like Sleeping Princess or Moss Wash. This type of trails has a high difficulty rating and one should have the right vehicle and good driving skills to tackle this type of trails. As I did not find any good source of information about the trails, we planned to drive at the beginning of our ‘offroad adventures’, I started to create this website. I hope, that it has some use for visitors and gives some kind of information and also inspiration.
