Moab scenery

The rock formations around Moab Utah are absolutely gorgeous. Here is just a few of the 100s of pics. we have from our trips down there. The last pic is of Newspaper Rock showing just a few of the 100s of pictographs the ancients drew on it.

Great pics. I have been wanting to go to Moab for a long time. First with my TJ and now with my JK. Its a long drive from the Midwest though! Maybe someday.

Steve, Anyone who likes to take their Jeeps off-road and explore just HAS to get to Moab at some point in their lives. I didn't understand what all the hype was about till we went. There is so much to see and so many different trails for all experience levels. I started calculating how much time we would need to do all the trails we want to do considering a 10 day stay per trip and came to the conclusion it would take us going down there 7 times to do it. So far we have been 3 times and were hoping to go again this year but alas I won't be able to get the vacation time to do it. RATS!

Even if you aren't a Jeeper though there is lots to see and do in Utah that most just don't realize.

No I never saw that but took a closer look since you said it. How funny.

There is a primative dry camp right across the street from this rock. We didn't stay there as we were in a park in Moab about 35 minutes away. As long as it wasn't too hot out though it would have been a great place to stay.

I plan to head out west this summer but I don't think Moab will be one of the destinations this time. But it is on the short list of vacation travels! Now, if I was pulling the JK with a motorhome I might talk my wife into taking the jeep all the way out there!! I better work on that next!

Hey for the Jeep owners (and even those who don't own Jeeps) with trailers who can't take their Jeep with them on the road you can rent modified and stock Jeeps from several sources in Moab. Not cheap though, about $140/day.

O.K. Steve, I ploted out the route from St Lous to Moab, Vs Enumclaw, WA to Moab using Google maps and you only have about 1 or 1.5 hours more driving time than I do (18.5 to 20 hours). I can't get vacation time this year to go but we will meet you in Moab in September 2011, no excuses....
