« Travel Day To Arches National Park - (Moab, UT) | Main | February Financial Summary »

Great photos and entry today Howard. I always wondered what that campground would look like as I plan to visit sometime in the future. Looking forward to your future photos and comments.

Howard the pictures are wonderful - and I can't wait to see more. Last March we did a road trip (driving part of route 66) and stopped in Moab and Arches for a day on our way to Texas. I think I have at least a hundred pictures from our one day there.

Seeing the pictures makes me want to go back and spend months like you will be doing. Who know perhaps someday we will be camp hosts in that park.

We only ate at one place while in Moab - the Moab Brewery - it was wonderful. Please post lots of pictures.

WOW...what views, I always thought Utah was a beautiful place no matter where you are traveling in the state. We LOVED Bryce and Zion also.
Thanks for the great pixs today!!

After what you said about the dry camping sites and the site you'll be in for 2 months, I don't think I would care to go there at all. I wonder how they can get volunters to come back? No we're not tired of red rocks. Please take lots more and keep them coming. I'm glad that Linda has gotten over her cold. Have a good time. Bob W

I'm so glad you are there. It is the most spectacular place...just as wondrous are the areas following the Colorado River. You are in heaven.

Howard, I am so envious!!! We will NOT tire of seeing the red rocks!!! We visited the Canyonlands area about 5 times for 2 to 3 week vacations in the 1990's. The first time in our poptop trailer, then the next 4 times camping from the back of our 4x4 suburban on the back country 4 wheel drive roads in the area. We love the open beautiful scenery.

You asked: "Getting tired of red rocks yet?" Every time you ask that question, I will answer emphatically "No!"
Gorgeous, just gorgeous!
The cabin looks very cute from the outside too.


When I saw these pictures I knew that this is one place we must visit.

All the photos were spectacular. I look forward to a time when we can do what you guys are doing and post photos for family and friends who are back in their 9 - 5 jobs in a winter climate.

Glad to see that you and Linda are back 100% and in good form.

Sooner or later you're going to go stir crazy and descend into Moab. We were there last Spring and you have to try this restaurant. Here's what I said in my blog: "We decided that after a day in the sun there'd be no cooking tonight, so back to the park for showers and a change, and off to Miguel's Baja Grill. If this place was in LA, I'd be a regular. They don't just offer the usual Mexican choices of chicken, beef, and pork, but also lamb for any dish! Loni got the lamb enchiladas and I got the M.O.A.B. -- not the City, but the Mother Of All Burritos. We halved our dinners and split them. The MOAB comes with a choice of sauces. CHOOSE THE MOLE! I happen to like Oaxacan food because of the mole sauces, and we have some topnotch places in LA. But this dark mole was the best of its kind I've ever had. Smoky, chocolatey, and tangy. The margueritas are just so-so, but adequate. The owner came out after the waitress told him we were delerious with lip-smacking and we heaped some praise.Very nice folks. DO make this a stop if you are in Moab." -Jon

Beautiful pictures. 18 months and counting down till we full time. My wife and I enjoy mountain biking and so I'm curious if bikes are allowed on the trails at Arches?

We have thoroughly enjoyed your travels the last couple of weeks since we became regular readers! Great job on the pictures and commentary! Also glad to see/hear that Linda is better.

We are so glad to see Linda is getting in the pink again. Being sick is a bummer any time but while full timing it is the pits. There is just so many things you want to do. Any way good to see you up and about again Linda.

By the way Howard, how is your father? We still have him in our prayers.

I have Bell's Palsy and enjoy your blog very much. First time I've commented, but have been reading here and there.
Great blog. I enjoy reading it every chance I get and value your opinions!
