Friday morning we pulled out of Riverton, Wyoming and landed near Moab, Utah 500 miles later. We took a very scenic, quiet route through Wyoming and Colorado avoiding chaotic Salt Lake City. Geri and Larry were waiting for us—in the same spot where we boondocked almost two years ago. We have different kinds of neighbors this time John and Brenda--
As we came through Grand Junction, CO we noticed strange vapor trails in the sky—as in round vapor trails. Then we noticed the jets—flying in formation, whirling, cartwheeling, streaking through the sky—I Googled “air shows in Grand Junction, CO” and discovered the USAF Thunderbirds were in Grand Junction for the weekend—cool!
Today we loaded our cargo trailer with all three ATVs and headed out the River Road to a riding area called “Dome Plateau.” As always Moab didn’t disappoint us—“wow” was the word of the day I think! We didn’t unload and get started until almost noon so photos are a little washed out from the bright sun.
Geri and Michael took a little hike to get behind this arch. Notice Geri carrying Emmi in the second photo—seems when Emmi started down the slick rock she got a little ahead of herself and started sliding—she was in no danger but it scared her—Geri to the rescue!
Our guide, AKA Geri, usually leads us on these rides with almost pinpoint accuracy—today the GPS, trail book, map and signage conspired against us and we ended up wandering around out there trying to find the right trail for a long, long time—getting us home, back to the RVs after dark! The phrase 40 days and 40 nights kept going through my head!
I think more riding is on tomorrow’s agenda—more friends are arriving in the morning.
