Crazy Weather in Moab

The weather has been nuts in Moab. We’ve had pouring rain and then a freak hail storm that was a sheet of ice coming down on us. We’ve extended our stay in Moab in hopes that the red rock will dry enough so Finn can ride the legendary Slickrock Trail.

Trying to outrun a storm, we drove up in the La Sal mountains and got some cool photos of the foggy sky.

Today there have been a few short showers this morning, but the sun looks to be coming out and Finn is inflating his tires on his mountain bike.

    If you’re still in Utah, I highly recommend Capitol Reef Nat’l Park. It’s a small, relatively quiet park. The park has beautiful red rock formations, similar to what you’ve seen in Canyonlands and Arches. However, the national park campground is an unexpected oasis in the middle of all that red rock. Green grass and fruit orchard trees create a welcome rest after hiking each day. The road leading to and from the park is one of the most scenic you’ll find anywhere out west. I traveled 4,000 miles during the summer of 1994 and central Utah is a place I’ve returned to several times again.

    Thanks for the tip on Capital Reef. We decided to save that one and Zion for next time. We’ve seen Arches, Bryce and Canyonlands so far and need to pace ourselves … it’s so amazing! We are also thinking of doing some more extreme hiking next time, more than our typical day-tripping. Utah is a good place to explore and we’ll be back.
