4-25 to 4-28

4-25---We left Navajo Dam NM and headed to Moab UT. We arrived here about 3pm and first of all stopped at the Visitors Center to get some info. As we were walking out there were 2 policeman standing at our truck and trailer. Come to find out, we were partially parked in the turn lane. But we didn't get a ticket!! We then drove up to road 313, back in 18 miles and decided to camp along the Colo. river the 1st night, so headed back toward town. We found a spot 7 miles from town to camp in.

4-26---We slept in because of a long day yesterday. About 8am I overheard our neighbors talking about moving across the road to a different spot. I had to wake Bob because their site was a pull thru big enough for our trailer. As they moved, we moved into their spot. We have the Colo river on the south side of us and beautiful rock sculptures to the north. We then headed into town, got some natural spring water for drinking and then got some town water for the tanks in the trailer. Headed to the City Market for some lunch stuff and diesel then stopped at the rock shop to look around. After that we headed to Arches National Park.

After spending about 4 hours there, it was time to head home. Bob filled the water tanks, I took a hot shower and Carley (our Cocker Spaniel) took a nap. Bob bought a new topo map of Moab trails and I started a batch of chili. Carley is still sacked out.

4-28---Yesterday we visited the Canyonlands west of Moab. It is pretty there but after seeing the Grand Canyon, nothing compares to that. We drove to Moab today to see the Antique Car Show. Yesterday before we left to go exploring, several of the cars were headed up the canyon. At this car show, there were over 800 entries. I'll have to insert pics another time, cause they aren't downloaded yet. Just looked at the temp and it is 103 in the shade. Kinda a warm day today. More next time we get to town for internet service.
