The La Sal Road near Moab, UT -- Great Drive
We arrived in Moab, UT from Salt Lake City after dealing with lots of road construction which caused Rick to miss his morning coffee - and he was crabby. Fortunately, he was delighted when we got to Moab and saw the fabulous sites in the area. In fact, our first day there was spent traveling on the nearby La Sal Mountain Road. This great scenic drive starts just north of Moab and first follows the Colorado River in this spectacular canyon.The canyon walls next to the river are amazing. Here, you can see a new stone arch in the making which is being carved right into the rock.
We eventually emerged from the deep canyon and saw these mesas and remarkable rock formations along the river's edge.
