We found these instructions to Birthday Arch in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area on photographer Peter F. Flynn's blog:

Birthday Arch may be found by walking from the ruins of a ranch house apparently once belonging to a clan named Wolfe east by northeast up a sandstone slope.  After approximately three miles turn east and traverse around an impressive natural ramp that curves clockwise gaining a hundred feet or so.  The end of the ramp brings you to a narrow ridge from which to view Birthday Arch. 

GPS coordinates of Birthday Arch: N37°04'21.0" W111°41.3'46.0" (via utaharches.com)

Swimming is a popular activity at Lake Powell, especially in the summer when water temperatures can surpass 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Please be aware that there are no life guards or designated swim beaches at Lake Powell or on the Colorado River. Swim at your own risk. Swimming is prohibited at all marinas and launch areas.
A list of swimming locations and directions is available here.

There are so many great parks and public lands in all the states you'll be visiting. Use the adventure finder on our home page to find places to visit based on your favorite activities, but here are some of our favorite state-by-state highlights:

South Dakota: Mount Rushmore is a must-see on any visit to the region. So is the nearby Crazy Horse Memorial. But don't forget about the Badlands, which are home to some of our nation's most stunning landscapes.

Utah: This state is home to the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments and numerous state parks, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations that reach from northern Arizona into southern Utah. A summary of the highlights is available here.

Arizona: While we absolutely love the Grand Canyon, we also recommend checking out Arizona's State Parks, where you can slide on the natural water chute at Slide Rock State Park or see saguaro cacti, the symbol of the American West, at Catalina State Park.

New Mexico: Make sure to explore Carlsbad Caverns, famous for its spooky caves and extrordinary bat flights.

Texas: Explore Big Bend National Park, where you'll find a beautiful desert environment along the Rio Grande.

Enjoy your trip, and be sure to stop by and let us know how your trip went!
