7 Things To Do in Moab

We stayed in Moab for 13 days. We didn't spend the entire time in Canyonlands National Park (although we could have), we also visited other points of interest. Arches For most people Arches National Park would be the main attraction to visit, but its popularity means more people and that's not our scene (if we can avoid it). We visited the park twice.

Arches National Park

We visited Arches National Park a couple of times during our 13 day stay in Moab. Given its popularity and the fact that it was National Park week with free entry, it was crowded and we limited our time there.  I thought this post would be best served as a photo essay.

Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park is huge and the sweeping views are massive, it's really hard to capture them on camera and to see every part. We definitely gave it the old college try! I really love this quote from Major John Wesley Powell that they have at the Green River Overlook in Canyonlands.

Weekly Wanderings #14 – Moab

For our second week in Moab we moved RV sites. We stayed in a fancy resort, a nice treat after five weeks of more rustic sites.

When we originally planned our trip we were going to fly into Las Vegas and fly out of Salt Lake City, but when I went to book a car for our trip and configured it for the drop-off at a different airport the price doubled!

Southwest Road Trip 2012 Day 9: Sorrel River Ranch, Canyonlands and dust storms oh my!

Having arrived in Moab to stay at Sorrel River Ranch the day before to much needed rest, we woke up feeling a little more refreshed. We had breakfast in our little kitchen and prepared for the day. We had a choice between Arches and Canyonlands and went with the later because we hoped it would be less crowded. When we left Sorrel it was a bit windy but we didn't pay much attention to it as we … [Read more...]
