Hiking to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park.

Hiking to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Tuesday, March 19th.

Over the next two days (March 18th and 19th) our goal was to drive to Moab.


Early Monday morning (March 18th) Ann and I headed for Phoenix for 2013 FC-Roundup this coming weekend. We stopped Monday evening in Salt Lake Monday Night for dinner at Rodizio Grill with my kids.


David, Kasia, and Colter. Karson was away at FEMA Corps during our visit.

The next morning, we began our drive to Moab. On our way out of Salt Lake City, near Point of the Mountain, we met up with a reader named Jake. He and his father have refurbished two jeeps, a CJ-2A and a CJ-5. They are now on their third, a CJ-3B. The 2A and 5 will be down in Moab next week for the Easter Jeep Safari. If you see them say Hi! Thanks for taking the time to meet with us Jake!

After visiting with Jake, we continued on our way. Four hours later, we entered Arches National Park. It was a beautiful day to explore the area on foot. We decided to hike to Delicate Arch.

After our beautiful hike, we spent the night at a local hotel. Tomorrow we plan to explore more of the Moab area.

    We plan on camping a few days with my kids in southern utah. I expect we will head back through Salt Lake. We will be picking up terra tires in Boise and having lunch with some readers at the Boise Fry Company. We will be through on the 3rd or 4th. I’ll know more once we finalize the camping, which is weather dependent.
