Before moving to Colorado I didn’t know too much about the slice of heaven that is Moab, Utah. Or really the desert, in general. Hah.
I had seen pictures of the Delicate Arch and watched videos of beautiful models crack climbing in Indian Creek. But the likelihood of death by snakes and/or dehydration kept me away for a while.
Then some nursing school friends wanted to go out for a long weekend. Somewhere between hiking in Arches National Park and climbing the seemingly endless sandstone, I become a convert. When can I move there?
So in between then and now, we have gone to Moab three more times.
There are so many desert activities to choose from!!
We have gone climbing in Indian Creek.
We have hiked in Canyonlands National Park.
“We” “mountain biked” the Slick Rock Trail. I walked my bike about 70% of the day. Not the right trail for the first time mountain biking, oops..
We went canyoneering in Granary Canyon.
On our last trip we went with some friends to Robber’s Roost. Roadtrip Ryan’s site provided some good info.
One of those canyons involved rappelling into a cold, murky water pit that produced a lot of good shrieking/wailing.
We usually get out of tight section and it opens up and we eat and rejoice in living to see another day. IT’S THAT EXTREME.
Basically the Moab area is a gigantic desert playground and I look forward to moving there forever.
