Moab, Utah

This week is National Parks Week. We showed our appreciation by visiting two Parks, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, both near Moab, Utah. The entrance fee to each Park is $25 per vehicle. For those of you are age of 62 or over, you definitely need to get the Park Service's Senior Pass. We got ours in 2007. You pay a one-time fee of $10 and it allows you to get into any National Park for free. The Senior Pass expires when you do.

On our way over to Moab from Zion, we stopped at Devil's Canyon.

The first pictures were taken in the Arches National Park this week.

To get a perspective on how large the above arches are, look for the tiny man at the bottom of the arch to the far left.

Again, see the man in the middle of the arch on the above picture.

The following pictures were taken on another day in Canyonlands National Park.

See the car on the road in the above photo. It came up from the bottom of  the canyon below -- just to give you some perspective of the size of these canyons.

See people walking on the hiking trail. This Park has hundreds of different hiking trails from easy to very difficult and dangerous ones that take over 4 hours.

There also are many bike trails throughout this area. Today, we took a short bike ride up Hwy 128, a Scenic Highway, which runs along the Colorado River.

 We are leaving this area tomorrow and heading towards Vail, Colorado. Continue to live the life you love.
