I really think that Moab, Utah will be on our travel plan every year. We just love this place. It has a vibe that we can relate to. We spent 3 weeks here this time and tried some new adventures. I’ll begin our Moab recap with some of our scenic drives and a little hiking.
We couldn’t resist getting out on the Colorado River this year. There are many options offered (kayaks, rafting, tour boat, jet boat). We decided to do the sunset 2 hr jetboat ride and had a blast! Our driver made sure to give us a beautiful, as well as exhilarating ride. So fun!
Our next big adventure was renting a Jeep for a day. This year, in particular, we have been to so many places where having a Jeep would have been so perfect. Now, after trying it out, we feel pretty sure that we will trade in our Ford Edge for a Jeep. We’re excited!
While waiting for our favorite boondocking site to become available, we spent a few days at Ken’s Lake Campground. It’s a BLM operated campground so we get a senior discount of 50%. We had a great site overlooking the lake.
We learned of a nearby waterfall which was within hiking distance from our campsite, so we headed off to see it. We were wondering if we took a wrong turn because I couldn’t hear any water. When we reached the location, there was a trickle of water and the rocks looked wet. But that was it. This is the waterfall we hiked to see.
We started hiking back down to the campground and I heard a roaring sound. I turned around a saw this! If I had stayed at the rocks two minutes longer, I would have been soaked (or worse)!
Our favorite boondocking spot north of Moab was empty, so we headed over as quickly as possible and snagged this premium location minutes after it became available. The previous occupants left a large pile of firewood behind, so we were all set for our 2+ week stay. Whoopie!
We were joined by Al and Ingrid (Live, Laugh, RV blog) for Mother’s Day weekend. Much to our delight, Ingrid cooked a bunch of her yummy goodies (healthy, too). She prepared a skilletini breakfast for all of us on Mother’s Day and then we drank mimosas the rest of the day! Oh happy day.
We’re currently in Grand Junction, Colorado. I will be leaving Mike and Lucy here and flying to California for a week with my daughter (and to get my regular dermatologist screening). Can’t wait to see the family!
