There have been a lot of accidents this year on national park trails. So be careful. I got into trouble in Moab at Arches N.P. on the trail to Delicate Arch. I was out so early that no one was ahead of me on the trail and I lost the cairns that marked the trail over the slick rock. I ended up on a very hazardous slope instead of the good trail leading to the arch. I made it but it was a silly mistake. I think Capitol Reef and Arches are great national treasures but they require lots of moderate to difficult hiking to see the sights. Take a Jeep ride in Moab for a huge thrill.

Beautiful Area. We rented a Jeep and did some on our own. What a Great Adventure, some Trails we did with our TV. Also a Raft trip on the Green River is Fun.

We spent time at Dead Horse Point (near Moab) and Capital Reef early this summer. Both are beautiful places, but Capital Reef is one of our favorite National Parks. Enjoy.

Just left the Zion area yesterday. Had been there more than a week. Showers, thundershowers every day in the park thru Fri. Lots of big spontaneous waterfalls on the cliffs, a truly breathtaking display. Virgin river would rise and run red and muddy. Now the weather has cleared. They lifted campfire restriction in Watchman campground during out stay.

sounds great

we are in garden city right now...headed south tomorrow to deer creek state park at midway....

has anyone traveled utah highway 39 from the bear lake area south from woodruff to huntsville.....the road is listed in the truckers mountain directory with a "very narrow" road advisory..

.it says "between huntsville and ogden hwy 39 goes through a narrow canyon for 5 miles...there is little grade, but it is very curvy, not too wide.......the road is probably wide enough.....but just barely...

thanks for all the input

We decided that if the only place in the world we could camp was Coulter Bay in the Grand Tetons, that would be ok with us. Have fun.

There is a full service campground in Moab, next to the Colorado River (west side of highway) that's delightful.

While I know you're headed for Moab. Dead Horse Canyon State Park is fantastic. It only has electricity, but the view (near the campground) is priceless.

You're in a great part of the country!!

movin on

we left deep creek and headed south to huntington state park....neat little place on a small lake...then onto green river state park bounded by a golf course it is a neat little oasis in an otherwise bleak desert......

now we are in moab, just got here and settled in the moab valley rv camp just at the intersection of US 191 and utah 128 just south of the colorado river.....

will spend the next two days scratching the surface of arches and canyonland national parks ...so much to see and do ....where does one start in only two days.......not....oh well

i have been thinking of./...when we head towards capitol reef....i will travel south on US 191 to Blanding ...where it intersects utah 95 and then turn north and go towards hanksville,,this will take us past the natural bridges national monument and across the colorado river as it enters lake powell....anyone been this direction???

thanks
