Moab, Utah

 Hi all,
We headed out on Thursday for Moab, Utah. It was about 170 miles of very pretty scenery.
Mexican Hat
We got a site at OK RV Park 3 miles south of town. Wendy had searched the park reviews and thought it would be a good place for a few days. As luck has it we got the last site and it is looking directly at a old run down mobile home. Turns out the annual Easter Jeep Safari is this week and most everything in town is booked. So we will just make the best and carry on.
 Moab is a super mecca for the outdoor fanatic. The area is famous for off road vehicles and mountain biking. But that's not all one can do, there's tons of rocks to climb, rafting the Colorado River, along with oodles of hiking.
 You also have two major national parks, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park to explore.
 Our first goal was Arches N.P. and what a place! Over 75,000 acres and over 2000 arches. We were amazed, we spent a good six hours in the park on the first visit and saw probably 12.
  Not just arches there are plenty of balancing rocks and canyons to explore the hours away.
 Some of the arches are visible from the road and some require a hike. Finding parking spots can get crazy at times, they do have some shuttle plans in the future.
 They have a 50 site campground no hookups and reservations are usually necessary.
