We are done converting, adjusting and key-wording photos from the last few months – that was pretty fast for us!  I’m not sure about this photo, but it is an image that struck a cord with Janine, so I’m posting it for her.  🙂

Take a look at more of our Canyonlands National Park photos.

Green River Overlook, Canyonlands National Park, Utah.

I photographed sunset from this beautful viewpoint a couple different evenings on our trip.

If you look closely, you can see the White Rim Road.  The best overnight camping sites along this 4 wheel drive road are by permit only and fill months in advance.  I would love to camp down there someday, hopefully on our next visit.  We have friends from Seward who have mountain biked the trail and said it was amazing.

Slickrock Bike Trail, Moab, Utah.

Before we left Moab, we had to bike the world famous Slickrock Bike Trail.  All I can say is, wow!  It really is a lot of fun – riding on solid rock like that is a treat.  The views are amazing.  You can look across the Colorado River into Arch National Park.  Other viewpoints give you views of the town of Moab, the La Sal Mountains, and, well really, you can see 360 degrees in all directions.Read More

In this aerial view of The Maze, I think it is easy to see why Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were so successful hiding out here.  To this day, this inhospitable region is still considered to be one of the most remote areas in the Lower 48. 

You see back in the days Butch Cassidy and the Hole in the Wall Gang hide out here, bank robbers ran from the U.S. Government.  Today, well…

Climbing in Moab.

Climbing in Moab.

Last year I wrote a post entitled action Jackson where I wrote about the amazing range of outdoor recreation activities easily accessible in Jackson, Wyoming and the Grand Tetons. The same can be said for Moab, Utah as well.

Everyone is familiar with the mountain biking and jeeping in the area, but there is also great climbing and bouldering. With the Colorado River flowing through town, you can canoe or kayak calm water, or raft and kayak big white water. There are numerous hiking trails. Canyons to be explored – well you get the idea.
