We’ve Moved

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! Smile

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!  Winking smile

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!

IMG_1982The flying EmmiIMG_1984Amy, Jay and Geri hiked up to the Indian Bathtub—we think there used to be a ladder so you could look  over into the “tub” but no ladder today and the edge is too tall to see over.

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!


  1. With what you're seeing and doing, I'd wait before heading back to Montana!

  2. Yep, I'm with Judy not much choice in that question.

  3. But Lora Elizabeth is in Montana..................

  4. When faced with one of those precarious climbs I would always ask "Do we have to come back down this?" That was always worse than going up for me. Love the flying Emmi!! I'm sure home is calling, but there is so much still to see where you are - I think the weather is telling you to stay put for a while longer :-))))

    1. I would NOT have gone down that steep climb Jodee, no way!

  5. You are becoming quite the ATV rider this winter:) Good for you! The ATV's really get you back into some neat places. John said it would cost us a fortune to settle in this area because we would have to buy so many toys...ATV's, a modified Jeep, mountain bikes, etc. Boy, the weather hasn't been our friend here recently. We haven't had but a few drops at Capital Reef but we don't want to be in a canyon on a dirt road if one of the storms comes our way and that is where the hikes we haven't done are located.

    Enjoy your stay in Moab!! We just love area. Can't wait to see what other adventures you'll find in this area.
