The morning of July Sixth we went back to Arches to explore the Devils Garden section. We planned to get up early to avoid high temperature. As usual, it did not happen. We finally got to Devils Garden at around 10:30 AM. At trail head we saw some people resting under shades. We didn't know whether they had already completed the journey, or just abandoned.

A stroll in Devils Garden ? It sounded cool, but the reality was very very hot. Fortunately we carried enough water so we were not evaporated.

I started with the ambition to reach the double-O Arch. After a sweaty and futile struggle, I decided to make a U-turn.

This was the nearest point I reached for double-O. The time was 11:30. I got a strange illusion that I was melting down. Or maybe that was not an illusion at all..

The most beautiful Arch in Devils Garden was Landscape Arch. At least, it was the most striking one I saw. Most of these Arches were very difficult to aim and fit into picture. In most cases the distance was too short for the best angle. I bet that you couldn't find a good picture anywhere for, say, the Navajo Arch. I have been there so I know. I tried to aim but eventually gave up.
