Amazing scenery, Moab Utah

                                                                Where are we today

         Our Walmart overnight here in Grand Junction CO, was wonderful only 2 other RV's here and no trucks. And had a great sleep as well. Much warmer overnight, windows open just perfect. We are ready to hit the road at 8 am just wanna get to Moab only a couple hours away. Nice to get on the road early on a a Sunday morning, no traffic at all, the roads are deserted. Love this kind of travelling.
leaving Grand Junction
           Not far down the road we entered Utah. Now we getting closer to where we wanna be.
yup we in Utah
         Destination today was the Seven Mile parking just outside of Moab, This is a wonderful boon docking site, lotsa room and open spaces only $5.00 per vehicle per day. and just off the highway, no major  back roads. This will work for us, no noise to bother us, perfect, 2 trains and the odd vehicle all day.
we are enjoying it here
       All set up by 10:30 made a nice light lunch and I whipped into town to the Dollar General for a Verizon top up card, wash the car and fuel it. While Suzie relaxed for a bit. Home  just after noon and we decided to start a tour of the  Arches National park just down the road. The main reason we came to this area.
       And all those miles we drove tp get here in decent weather was worth it. The scenery around here is absolutely amazing ! Have been reading Gay and Joe's blog for a very long time and they spend so much time in this area exploring in their jeeps, and love the amazing scenery that they have posted. We don't have a Jeep but sure need to explore what we can.
        So we are starting out this afternoon to check out only a part of the Arches National Park. So much to see here and the scenery is amazing !
        I took way too many pictures today and only did a few hours here this afternoon, another day or two would be great even more if we could hike some of these amazing trails they have. I will try try to cull the pics down a bit, sorry for too many.

        We did the  park  free video to start at the visitor's centre and sure was worthwhile. What a great presentation and history of the Arches. There is over 2,000 arches here and we not even come close to seeing them all, they are amazing as is the whole area. I have always said, go to Floria and see what man made, or come west and see what GOD made. We much prefer the natural beauty of the west.
can you see the people walking
under the Arch?
     We got home about 3:30 a enjoyed  a wonderful time outside with our e-readers, with this wonderful 76f weather. Though over cast it was perfect. First tome in over a week.
what a great place  so peaceful and
reasonable, love the open spaces
       After enjoying our books for a while was 5 pm time to start supper. Easy one, make a salad and heat up our left over Hamburger helper from the other day.
sure hit the spot today
       After supper we enjoyed a warm evening outside until about 7, getting dark and time for Suzie';s show  Madame secretary.
       We are here where we wanna be for a few days enjoying this amazing area, taken us 10 years to put in our plans and sure glad that we finally got  here. Sure was worth the trip.
       Any who, that was an amazing day we had and love the area.
       Thanks for stopping by again, hope y'all come back again.

  2. It is a wonderfully magic area. The last time I was there was in 2002. Check your camping prices. They do not agree with the sign in your picture.

  16. Like many I also follow Good Times Rollin and their wonderful adventures in the area. Since our son moved from Denver we don't travel this way as often. Looking forward to your adventures also, and a little nudge to encourage us to spend more time here. BTW - there's Goblins to the west ...
