Ruby/Horsethief hikes?

What are some of the best camps with the best side hikes for a layover day?

I've haven't run Ruby-Horsethief yet, but supposedly there are some good side hikes up in there. Rattlesnake canyon has a bunch of archs in it, and if you hike way up Mee canyon, there is an overhang that supposedly rivals some of the biggest on the colorado plateau. I think both of these hikes are a long ways from the river, so they would probably be layover material.

There is also a great short hike at black rocks that rims out. If you look at the rim from the camps just head to the most likely spot that goes, and there is an old sheep trail that you will find by the time you get just below the rim.
PS make sure the ice is out. I know some people that got caught down there a couple to years ago.
