Seven days without internet—wow—can you believe I survived?? We did go into the town of Blanding, Utah a couple times and I was able to post blogs but any other internet pursuing went by the wayside! We are now near the town of Moab, Utah and have good 4GLTE signal—hallelujah!! Seriously we were so busy riding, exploring ruins, and just having fun it wasn’t too hard to do without internet.
But now I can see Lora Elizabeth photos whenever I want!
We arrived here about noon after dumping tanks and taking on fresh water at the Shell station in Blanding. Geri and the cowboy quickly started planning a ride—let’s make hay while the sun shines or something like that!
Off we went to find Wilson’s Arch from the back side—this is the arch you can see from the highway when traveling south of Moab, Utah. We were also looking for the Whale Eye and the Indian Bathtub—score!—found all three! The riding was skill building to say the least!! At the base of one VERY steep slick rock hill I stopped, looked back at the cowboy and said with eyes wide, “can I DO this???” Geri and Larry had all ready gone up successfully and Michael too headed up—OK, I gritted my teeth and went for it! As I am writing this blog, you know I too made it to the top!
Along the trail we crossed paths with another couple, Jay and Amy from Price, Utah. They were looking for Wilson Arch and joined up to ride with us the rest of the afternoon—what pleasant, fun people—we are glad they took the time to ride with us!
Gorgeous country around here to say the least. We rode about 26 miles yesterday through some rugged, challenging country and loved every minute of it—we didn’t get back to the rigs until after 6pm and we were all beat, even little Emmi!
The weather at home for the next seven days is not looking so great with a combination of rain/snow—to go home or not to go home, that is the question!
