President’s Day Weekend in Moab

Saturday – Monday, February 15-17, 2014

For the long President’s Day weekend, Diane and I decided to spend the weekend around Moab. We had booked a hotel room a few weeks earlier and had no idea how nice the temperature would be this weekend. Unfortunately, thanks to the three-day holiday weekend and warm weather, Moab was a bit busier than it normally is this time of the year.

Last Weekend Around Moab

Friday – Sunday, October 11-13, 2013

After an amazing day of weather and photography I woke up early again and decided to drive out to Dead Horse Point State Park so I could catch the sunrise this morning. It had been a few years since I’d been up there and they were offering free admission to anyone with a National Parks Pass while the National Parks were still closed. I was also hoping there might be some leftover clouds from the storms the previous day. When I arrived I was surprised to find that there were only a couple of other people up there. I figured with all the other parks closed, this would be a popular place. I’m glad it wasn’t.

Veteran’s Day on Copper Ridge

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

This Veteran’s Day I wanted to check out the Copper Ridge trail. I have been on bits and pieces of this trail before, but have never done the whole thing in one shot before. I made my way to Moab and topped off my tank before heading north out of town and turning onto the old highway just opposite of the Gemini Bridges Road. I followed the old highway for about a mile and a half before turning left at the start of the Copper Ridge trail. The trail follows along part of the Bar M Loop at this point.
