|up to 10 people would sleep in an area like this which is below ground|
|Momma bear - 2 cubs and what appeared to be one teenager (not normal to have them together so we're not sure) - about 200 yards from the road - munching away and didn't seem to mind we were there watching|
|They allow picking of the fruit in their open orchards - yummy apples!|

Goblin Valley State Park and Little Wildhorse Canyon - Goblin Valley had a very unique area of rock formations (goblin-like) which was very cool to check out and hike around. Little Wildhorse Canyon was also very beautiful but you must beware of threatening storms to not be caught in the canyon wash (the ranger told us to be prepared to climb quickly if we heard something that resembled a freight train - Yikes!).
San Rafael Desert Loop Auto Tour - We were fortunate to stumble upon this drive which took us on 70+ miles of dirt road and magnificent scenery including a remote section of Canyonlands National Park (Horseshoe Canyon) as well as an active geyser.
Gemini Bridges - this is our first "official" off-road Jeeping near Moab. I picked one marked "easy". Yes, I'm chicken! It turned out to be an incredible drive (yes, easy) with amazing views of the surrounding canyons and the natural Gemini Bridges.
Dead Horse Point State Park - This park has spectacular views of the Colorado river far below and the gooseneck curves. Although it was cloudy and rainy, the views were still breathtaking.
We will be in Moab, UT until Friday and continue to enjoy time in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Stay tuned for pictures from these incredible places next time!
Til Next Time...Happy Trails!
