It's a bit of a challenge to get up there, but very cool-

That is awesome! I never knew that was there. Next time I'll check it out!

Just Great!!!
Thanks for this, the past RR's on Utah are sure helpful and inspiring. Heading out there mid May. Thankfully I dont have to worry about running out of gas. (about 650 miles with all the tanks full)

That's some impressive fuel range. Have fun in Moab!

I'm acclimated to Montreal winters, I'd probably shatter in desert heat
Thunderstorms = flash-floods eh?

When does it begin to cool down?

Late October, early November. However, I have been backpacking in Canyonlands in Late November where the temps were still in the high 90s, low 100s. To make it more confusing, I have also been in a snowstorm in Moab in early October.

Awesome report!

Thanks for sharing all the photos and putting together the report dave!

I find myself asking "Why has it been so long since my last visit there?"

Panasonic Lumix TZ5

I shoot almost all photos in the "Intelligent Auto" mode and the color set to "vibrant".


This is what I'm planning for July. A 2up asphalt tour of California to celebrate our 15th Anniversary.
