Vacation in Moab UT October 2008

This past week Lucy and I left Salt Lake City for a week of vacation in Moab UT. Unlike any other vacation this one was quite unique. With no activities planned the two of us ventured down to Moab with Flower (the cat). The weather along the Wasatch Front had hints of Winter in the air as we headed to the Southeast corner of Utah.

We left on Sunday morning and the clouds and inclement weather gave way to clear blue skies and beautiful temperatures in the mid 70's.

We spent the week hiking and mountain biking on the local trails. During a typical day we would roll out of bed after 8 hours of sleep. If we were lucky we would just catch the sun rising over the La Sal Mountains. Stumbeling towards the coffee pot we would jumpstart the day and plan our adventure. Monday we hiked Negro Bill Canyon. Tuesday we mountain biked the Soverign Trail. Wednesday we took a guided tour through the Fiery Furnace in Arches Natl' Park. Thursday we drove over to Fruita CO and mountain biked on the Kokopelli Trail along the Colorado River. That evening we had dinner in Grand Junction CO with some friends before returning home. Friday and Saturday we mountain biked in Moab and worked on the condo. Sunday afternoon we returned to Salt Lake City with our batteries recharged ready to go back to work. We had a wonderful time in Moab and enjoyed our time together. With our hectic schedules and disimilar hours it was nice to step out of the conga line and relax. We are already looking forward to our next vacation in February 2009!
