Utah - Part 2

After a good night sleep, we started our trek down south. It was a bit of a dreary day, with actual rain in the desert! But since we were driving, it wasn't too bad.
Pretty soon after hitting the road, the countryside started to look very interesting and very ‘rocky’. We took some of the back roads, of which some were absolutely deserted, but it was very impressive. We hit some real mountains, which were really cool but also somewhat scary since guardrails are pretty much unheard of. Luckily we didn’t get of the road…

Not much wildlife around, but we did see this hawk.

View you expect in movies, not in real life!

Gorgeous driving

Pretty funny sign...

After a long day of driving, where the landscape became rockier, dryer and less populated, we ended up in Moab, southern Utah. Moab is most famous for its two national and one state park nearby: Arches and Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park.  It’s a small, but very busy city and it was not easy to find accommodation. However, we ended up finding a room at Super 8. No comments…

Getting closer to Moab!

Lots of red rocks
