Since Amanda is in Illinois for the next week, I decided that I would head out to the San Rafael Swell for Halloween this year. I was originally planning on camping and making it a weekend trip, but since a cold front came through earlier this week, I changed my mind and didn’t feel like camping anymore, so I made it a day trip instead 🙂

After leaving Dinosaur National Monument and a quick stop in Vernal we headed south on our way home. However, we did have one more stop planned at Fantasy Canyon along the way.

We will definitely be spending more time up there in the future 🙂

I had entertained the thought of getting a hotel room in Moab and having Amanda join me, but since I was so close to home and didn’t want to spend the money on a hotel room for the weekend, I decided it would be best to just head home for the weekend.
