I've been roadtripping this past week and decided to spend the night in Moab, Utah. Being that it's January, this little mountain biking/tourist driven town of 4,800 people was quiet and cold, but the locals I did run into at Woody's Tavern were friendly and laid back. Growing beards and playing pool seemed to be the popular pastimes during winter there, I had a great time. They told me to come back in April during the Jeep Safari, when several thousand jeep owners descend upon the town to go offroading.
Arches National Park, about a mile from downtown Moab. The visitor's center wasn't open yet so I headed up the 2 lane road into the park. The landscape there is absolutely unreal, and being able to snap some photos just before and after sunrise was a treat. Next time I visit I'll make sure to do it in the warmer months, but I did enjoy having the park pretty much to myself. Well worth a visit if you're ever on I-70 out that way!
Below are some photos I took while there:
