We decided to take a break from the highway and spend a day in Moab, Utah. I’ve never been to the desert, so the photographer in me wanted to click some off. J had recommended renting a Jeep and off-roading the Shafer Trail to the White Rim Trail to the Lathrop Canyon down to the Colorado River. We rented a Jeep until 6pm, so we decided to go as far as we could and turn back at the halfway point.
The trails were described as intimidating to some but safe with the right vehicle for off-roading.
They were dirt rocky roads with a dramatic drop off on one side. If I kept my eyes on the road my vertigo wouldn’t be tripped. But I couldn’t help looking with that view.
Just as we were about to reach the Colorado River, we had to turn back. We would’ve run into a flash flood anyway, a big storm opened up and dumped a ton of rain on us.
Now we had a muddy jeep to wash to avoid the fines, but we had a blast !
out of time to see Arches National Park. There’s so much to see and do, we really needed a week to get it all in. Now we have an excuse to return some day.
