We had stopped about 2-3 hours outside of Moab, Utah last night after debating if we should drive on. Seeing what we did today, I am glad that we decided to stop. We would have been driving after dark and thus would have missed the whole San Rafael area. As it was, it took us at least 4 hours because we stopped at nearly all the rest areas. I-70 isn’t even marked as a scenic route! So let me just show the pictures and shut up.
Once we arrived in Moab, we realized that finding a room for the night might be difficult. Everything had no vacancy — but then we saw a Vacancy sign at an older Best Western. Turned out that they had 2 cancellations and Carl and I got the last room. We explored the tourist town for a bit, shared a lovely Antipasto Salad for late lunch and then drove around to explore the area. We happened on this scenic road… again I’ll let the picture speak for themselves.
