First Real Trip of the Year - Moab; Canyonlands NP
After a day and a half of preparation, I left Hutchinson, KS this afternoon and headed west. My destination- Canyonlands National Park and the Moab, UT area in general.
I've pretty much fallen in love with the area around Moab. The rock formations, the canyons, the desert, and the just the immensity of it all are impressive and beautiful. Moab is a pretty cool town too.
I should arrive at either Deadhorse Point campground or Horsethief Canyon campground sometime tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to crossing the Rockies tomorrow in my Ram 1500 gasser, just to see how it compares to the Ram 2500 diesel I pulled the same route with last year. I know I'll have to go slower, but that's ok. I'm not in a great hurry.
This will be a three week trip, so I'll have plenty of time to post pics of my adventures.
Right now I'm at the Colorado welcome area in Burlington, CO. If this stop is like others I've made, I'll probably sleep for 3 or 4 hours and hit the road again around 3AM.
Have a good one,
