Utah Adventures

I’m finally getting around to posting some pics from my April adventures in Utah! S- and I both had some work to do on this trip, so we didn’t get in quite as much camping as hoped… but it was still fantastic!

We went to…

  • Green River (good place to stop north of Moab)
  • Arches Nat’l Park (Too! Many! Tourists!)
  • Manti-La Sal (South)
  • Fishlake Wilderness (I wanted way more time here)
  • the “Little Big Canyon” (my name for it)

Where are your favorite places to go off-roading? Leave a comment or tell me on Twitter!

The first night, we camped at the Green River in very simple surrounds.

Next up on our trip, camping near Devil’s Canyon — even though all the campgrounds were closed!

Driving … driving … driving … and then we found rock paintings!

These people were clearly skilled artists. Much better stick figures than I can draw.

And finally reached our main destination.

It was 75 and a perfect sunny day, so I was riding around topless in the Jeep…

No, I’m not showing you a topless pic! What kind of site do you think this is?
“Little Canyon” eh? Pfft!

… and then it got cold! Next thing we knew, high desert hail storm! Very romantic! Not! So we bundled up and hunkered down for a few days and it was splendid. Hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows in the high desert, with a surprise live-music performance echoing off the canyons at sunset …

And, finally, the four of us drove home…

From the left – that’s Edna, the traveling Echidna, who followed me home from Perth a long time ago, and Didi the Sparkle-Dragon who joined us in Moab.

Until the next adventure…
