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.
