Colorado to Utah Trip

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

First off, let me say that driving West of Denver on I-70 on a Saturday morning during ski season is a bad idea. Traffic was terrible!!! I got up early this morning and left my friend’s apartment in Denver around 7:00am to start my drive over to Moab. Aside from the very heavy traffic the drive was not too bad. This was actually my first trip on that stretch of I-70 without pulling a trailer behind me, which made the drive a little easier!

Made my mandatory stop at the BK in Downieville for breakfast with my silver Impala SS rental.

I ran into some snowy conditions, but nothing serious…

When I started to get near Moab I made a few stops to find a few geocaches along the way. There was some snow on the ground, which was different for me since I have never been to Moab during the winter before. Here’s a few pictures from my geocaching today 🙂

My first Utah cache

Dropped off Amanda’s very first geocoin for her today as well 🙂

Another cache I found at sunset before heading back into town.
