Our trip will begin with a swift drive across the plains states to Denver.  After overnights in Kansas City and Denver, we’ll head through the Rockies en route to Moab Utah.  Coming out of The Rockies, we will receive a sampling of rugged desert scenery with a visit to Colorado National Monument.  At the edge of the Colorado Plateau, the monument  encompasses majestic golden canyons and towering sandstone formations.  Along the 22 mile rim drive, we will stop at several overlooks to marvel at its sheer walls and reaching spires. 

Departing Colorado National Monument, a gorgeous drive along the Colorado River will bring us to Moab, Utah.  Though the small town sits at the base of beautiful red cliffs of the La Salle Mountains, making it a jewel in the desert, Moab is most noted for being  the gateway to Canyonlands NP, Arches NP, and Dead Horse Point  SP .

During our 5-night stay in Moab, we will engage in several exciting activities. The following morning, we will be joined by a local guide for a tour of Arches NP.  The park has the greatest density of natural arches in the world.  In addition to arches, curious red and orange sandstone formations such as pinnacles and balanced rocks dot the park, making Arches National Park a fascinating place to visit.

Later, we will have a cowboy style  Dutch Oven Dinner and then board a sightseeing boat on the Colorado River for a Canyonlands by Night Cruise.  When the sun falls and the stars begin to shine brilliantly in the desert sky, the boat turns around and begins to float downstream.  As vehicles along the river light up the canyon walls, inspirational music fills the air.  This unbelievable evening on the Colorado River is one of the most unusual sightseeing attractions in our country.

One of our days in Moab will find us boarding 4-wheel drive vehicles for an incredible journey into Canyonlands NP.  A guided off-road tour will carry us from the rim of an awe-inspiring canyon to the Colorado River below.  The jeep trail's winding track along the canyon  give us dramatic red rock views most Moab visitors never see.  After lunch  along the River, our adventure will continue as we board a jetboat for a exciting ride on the  river.

On our last day in Moab, we head to Monument Valley Navaho Park, where giant, reddish buttes jut up from the desert floor, creating one of America's most recognized landscapes.   Here, we will join a special off-road vehicle tour, hosted by members of the Navajo Nation.    This tour will take us into parts of Monument Valley closed to private vehicles.  We will learn why this area is sacred to their tribe, hear legends and myths, and learn of the hardships of those who had lived in the valley.  During our tour, we'll have a private cookout in Monument Valley. 

We will be  overnighting in Denver and Kansas City again as we head for home with plenty of wonderful memories and of photos of our Moab adventure!
