It was a jeep day and Emmi found a new lap right off the bat:
Our yellow jeep fit right in with the jeep tour heading out from the first overlook:
When we were in Moab, Utah in 2011 we were weary of sightseeing and chose Arches National Park to visit and left Canyonlands for another time. I’m glad we are back in the Moab area and had Geri and Larry to tell us what a spectacular spot it was. The weather was warm today with a haze in the air which didn’t help my photos.
Muddy, muddy Colorado River two thousand feet below where we were standing—YIKES! Local legend has it the Indians herded large bands of horses across the barely 30 yard wide strip of land onto this “point” then built a fence of limbs and sticks to keep the horses contained in this natural corral 2000 feet above the Colorado. They then chose the best of the horses and the legend is left the rest of the horses out on this point to die of thirst—thus Dead Horse Point State Park.
Leaving Dead Horse Point State Park I said, “since it is getting so late, I think the guys should buy us dinner again.” They agreed without too much arm twisting and we were soon seated in a restaurant in downtown Moab—service and food was good. Back home we are running the generators to charge all our stuff, doing some computer work and writing this blog.
