The last stop on our two month trip out west was Moab, Utah.  I was exhausted from traveling and sightseeing  and could not wait to get home. Even though our motor coach is fully equipped with all the comforts of home- a dishwasher, washer and dryer and a king-sized bed, it's not home. I tried to talk Jim into bypassing Moab and heading home but we already had reservations and he really wanted to go so I reluctantly agreed.   I am so glad my powers of persuasion are limited!  We loved Arches National Park and did two awesome hikes in one day - we slept well that night!  Our second hike was a Ranger led 3 hour hike in the Fiery Furnace,  a permit only area.  Put this on your to-do list if you are in the area.  One of the things I loved the most was the contrast of color- deep  red-orange rock against a vivid, clear blue sky.  Our next day was a back country tour in a Hummer riding over  steep and  narrow rock cliffs!  Can you believe that there were also lots of folks riding their bikes up these rocks!  I am glad my transportation had a motor.

Haven't made it to Utah yet but it's on my list now. Fun to travel but even better to make it home safe. Glad to have you back.
