Our wonderful, albeit wet, week in Grand Junction concluding, it was time to hit the road again for Moab. The easy two hour drive was beautiful as we made our way through some rather barren land beside I-70, although it has a bit of green tinge to it at the moment. Glad to have waited a few more days to miss the weekend, I continued to watch the stream of traffic heading out of town. It's so good to be back in Utah, with only three days in the state two years ago, it was definitely one of my favourites. But we are clearly on the tourist trail now as this afternoon we heard & saw many different nationalities, not to mention a fair percentage of the rental car fleets from California & Nevada. We haven't really had too many crowds to deal with in our first five states, but as summer vacation & California approaches I don't imagine it's going to get much better.
All afternoon was spent at Arches National Park, which is just north of Moab. We saw many arches, mesas, spires & fans. It was incredible & you'll quickly get sick of my superlatives - so I'll just post a few photos (one day I'll get a better camera, I promise).
