April Moab Trip
We just came back from two GORGEOUS days in Moab. You couldn't ask for better weather...especially when it started POURING on Wednesday! We trailed w/the McLaughlins and saw "The Birthing Rock", "Monitor and Merrimac", the "Mammoth" petrogylph (finally), a cute turtle, Chuck and Ken using their GPS to figure out where we were, people watching us climb a crazy "road"?, climbing around Chicken Corners (I didn't go around the corner because I was CHICKEN and everything inbetween. Last year we spent probably 3 hrs. looking inbetween all the finns and canyons for this petroglyph of a mammoth. There are only two in the U.S. and couldn't find it. It was hot and disappointing. THIS year, we found it...YEA!...so I documented it. Moab doesn't always have "roads", so you follow little white strips of paint that have been painted on the rock. Sometimes those strips are on a tilted rock and a little freaky to go on! But we did it. Beautiful trip that everyone should have an opportunity to go see.
