These Glorious Days Just Keep Coming

I woke to rain sometime in the night—what???, rain???  Yep, just enough to get Emmi’s feet dirty when she and Michael went out first thing.  It was just about lunch time before the sun decided to peak out.

We were mostly bums for the entire morning although Geri and I worked our brains hard!!!  While at North Ranch I had helped both Geri and Angie start blogs—not to the point of publishing one but on the right path.  Geri was having connectivity problems that day and wasn’t able to fully load Window’s Live Writer. 

When Geri tried to log on to Live Writer later she kept getting “password/user name incorrect” messages knowing full well she was entering the correct information.  We tried all sorts of combinations, turning the computer off, uninstalling and re-installing Windows Essentials, etc.  I was almost to the point of calling Rick when I noticed the words “change proxy” at the bottom of the log-in screen.  I thought, what the heck, clicked on those words, found a screen which gave me an option, I used that option thinking I could change it back if all you know what broke loose!!  Went to the log-in screen and we were in!!!  Well, now—that took about a hour!!

Next up I had to remember how to make Live Writer use a default photo size—I searched Rick’s blog and found enough instructions that we were able to make that happen also.  Wow, we were on a roll!! 

After consulting the guys we decided to take a short jeep trip to Gemini Bridges after lunch.  As I was getting ready to call Mike to lunch a guy rode up on a dirt bike—with a badge and a gun—he works for the Utah Department of Natural Resources as an enforcement officer.  His dirt bike even had blue lights!!!  He’s the one who will give you a $750 fine for traveling off trail!  He was just checking to see if we were having a good time and if we needed any information.


Gemini Bridges—two rock “bridges” side by side suspended over a hundreds of feet deep canyon—standing on the bridges made my stomach clench!!  Michael and Larry weren’t having any part of getting too close to the edge!IMG_0968

Notice the off leash dog in the photo above—that’s the reason folks, we aren’t allowed to take dogs on the national park trails—get  your dog on a leash!! not to mention the fact it’s a long way down if the dog misses a step!!!!

Back home we started the generators and the grill.  Larry grilled foil wrapped potatoes and onions plus some chicken breasts.  We dined like kings outside in the sunshine.  It was another perfect day in Moab, Utah!!!


  1. I almost wrote yesterday about taking the road that goes to the bottom of the Bridges. That road is more of a real Jeep road. Not for cars like the top road. Darn, wish I had written. It is fun to do the top and bottom of this area. Glad you got out there:)

  2. Question. Where did you park your rig? I travel through the Moab area and would love to know where to stay with my Airstream. Boondocking is fine.

  3. Only been home about a week but looking at your photos I can feel the travel urges already stirring again.

  4. Spectacular photos again, Janna. You sure are getting a great look at that beautiful park.

    Congrats on troubleshooting your friends blogger issues. Sometimes, I find anyway, it's just blind luck that fixes problems - never ask why, just be thankful and move on.

  5. Oh Janna...I am jealous already!! Such beauty! Every time you show one of those deep canyon photos, my legs get rubbery!! It is so much fun to read your blog and know that you and your "cowboy" are living the life...;-)
