Chris and I went for an overnight camping trip in Moab, Utah. We left yesterday at 6am and came back today about 8pm. We went with our friends Anthony, Jeanna and Irene. We all had a great time and it felt like a lot longer than just 38 hours. So nice to get away for a quick weekend.
After lunch we went to Arches National Park which is just outside of Moab. It was beautiful, unlike anything I’ve ever seen- such bright red rock and really neat rock formations. You could drive around the park in a car and park to see formations or do a hike. This arch is called Navajo Arch.
Jeanna, Irene and I. (also known as Ursula, Vladmiar and Schlokosvia) We took a ton of pictures here because there was a lot of shade to rest in. It’s very hot in Moab. It’s basically the desert. It was about 94 degrees when we were hiking- I learned that the dry heat is far better than the humid heat in Minnesota. Humid heat makes you all sticky and gross. Dry heat makes you hate the sun and crave water and shade.
This is the world famous Delicate Arch. It’s on the license plates in Utah and is one of the icons of Utah- you’ve probabaly seen it before. We didn’t get that close to it, which I’d like to do, but there’s always next time!
Earlier today, Anthony, Jeanna and I went mountain biking. Moab is known for it’s mountain bike trails, so Midnight and I had to give them a try. The trails in Moab are very different from Park City- they are sandy and have a lot of big rock slabs that you ride on- versus narrow paths that are in and out of the woods.
I had a great weekend in Moab and can’t wait to go back! There’s still so much to do there! Thanks to all my travel buddies (inlcuding Pumpkin and Midnight)!! It was a great weekend!
