Southwest Vacation Day 3: Denver to Moab, UT
June 9, 2012
We left Denver for Moab, UT, home of Arches National Park.
Once in Moab we drove around looking for a place to camp since we had no previous reservations. We found the Upper Big Bend Camping Area along the Colorado river just south of Arches. The campground was one of the more rustic ones there with no water pump, no trash disposal, and the pit toilet did not have toilet paper provided. The one thing it did have was some great views.
Here is what we saw from our campsite:
Because we were not allowed to have a fire at camp, we went into the town of Moab for dinner. We ate at the Slick Rock Cafe and afterwords finished our drinks while listening to the live entertainment.
