Moab here we come

After a four hour drive from Springville UT we arrived in Moab. This has to be the coolest place in the US and a personal favorite. I advise everyone to come here once, take a trip to Dead Horse Point and just sit there for an hour to two. It beats the Grand Canyon hands down.

It's a little warmer here - for the metrically
challenged it was 39 degrees when we left Wyoming yesterday and this afternoon it was 94 degree's in Moab. I'm typing this on a park bench next to Winnie. I've got to go back in shortly and get some air con.

We're staying at the Canyonlands campground in the Centre of Moab. Great location - the town is within walking distance and the trails are not that far away. Walked into town to pick up some more t-shirts (love my Moab t-shirts) and then got our jeep. We've got a modified silver Wrangler Jeep - with a 3 inch lift and larger tires - sounds pretty cool if you ask me. Very strange to drive on the road but I'm told it handles well off piste :-) Can't wait. We are starting off our 4*4 adventure tomorrow morning with an easy trail - Hurrah Pass. From there we may try something a little more adventurous like the Shafer Trail, Gemini Bridges or Chicken Run.
