Cross-country drive – day 11

Category: Travel

Today we drove 105 miles through some of the most breath-taking scenery yet (I’ll have images up in a few days).  100 miles of driving is not the same everywhere; in Kansas it might take 90 minutes, but here it can take all day.  It’s not only a matter of elevation changes (which can really slow you down) but also because the scenery is so intense that you have to keep stopping to look at it and take pictures.

We are now in Moab, Utah, right next to arches national park.  Total to date – 2600 miles.  moab is a happening place, with plenty of restaurants, shops, and tourist services.  It isn’t a “roadside” kind of place – it has more of a resort town feel.

    Hope you enjoyed Arches, that is one of our favorite places in Utah. :-)

    Arches was incredible. I took literally 1000 pictures. I’ll post about it as soon as I wade through them!
