We're in Utah

Moab, Utah, to be precise. The drive across the Rockies on I-70 is jaw-dropping spectacular. I've been as far as the Loveland Pass tunnel previously, but the drive to Vail and beyond takes you through absolutely awesome mountains. We stopped at a rest area at Vail Pass, and I got a little short of breath walking up a hill to the facility. When we drove away, I realized why. The rest area was at 10,660 ft. Not much oxygen up there.

Moab is located right next to Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park. We're not really desert people, but the rock formations here are amazing, and so far we've just seen them from the highway. We'll do some exploring tomorrow and maybe Tuesday. Pictures from here will have to wait because this campground has very slow wi fi.

Sounds like a great trip so far. We spent the 4th of July in Moab one year - fireworks at the city dump. (We watched from our condo - wonder why?) Enjoy.
