Moab Highlights

  • The hike to Utah icon Delicate Arch in Arches NP.
  • Making fresh tracks through the snow to find Aztec granaries in Canyonlands NP. When they originally found these they still contained 800 year old corn!
  • The amazing buttes (said "bewts"), mesas, and canyons of Canyonlands NP. Every bit as impressive as the grand canyon, and one of the wildest, most inacessible, and harsh areas in the US.
  • Snowshoeing off-trail in the La Sal mountains.
  • Walking on a completely frozen lake, and watching people play ice hockey out in the middle.
