    Hi all, I am hoping someone is able to help me :)
    I am looking for a particular location, it's listed in an online document that should direct me about ~1 mile north of the entrance of Arches NP just outside Moab, UT. However when I put the GPS coordinates into my Garmin (removing the 2nd decimals), it constantly puts me on the south side of the La Sal Mts, about ~45 miles south of where Im expecting. I need to hike to this location, and it's in a maze of slick rock, so it's important I get as close as possible. I have gone out 3x (again today, and not finding the spot, Ive totaled over 30 hiking miles looking).
    This may be an different format of logging coordinates that Garmin can recognize (that I know how to search for on Garmin), Im sure some on this forum will know much better than me, and when I use some gps conversion programs I found online it doesn't put me near Arches NP.

    N 38.37.435 W 109.07.549

    Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

    Nuvi, THANK YOU for the quick response, the coordinates you provided place me in the area I would expect what I am looking for to be, the only sad part is I was about 600 ft away from that location on my last walk, have to laugh! Thanks again!
