and now about our trip to Moab...

11.20.2010
A trip down to Moab was one of the things on my list. Seeing as it is one of Jordan's favorite places to go I knew it wouldn't be too hard to plan a trip. We loaded up (and I mean loaded up: 4 people in a 2 door civic, with the accompanying camping gear, coolers, camping chairs, food, tent, dutch oven, and 2 bikes...did we bring enough?) and headed out of town with our good friends the Harper's. This was Devin and Jordan's 4th trip to Moab together.



We camped at the perfect place. It was right by the hike that Claire and I were going to be doing and the end of the trail Jordan and Devin were going to bike. Couldn't have planned it better! The Harper's made dinner the first night. Boy was it tasty! We had tin foil dinners and peach cobbler, made in the dutch oven. After a VERY cold night, we woke up and had an awesome camping breakfast: scrambled eggs, hash-browns, pancakes, bacon, sausage, and OJ. We decided food is one of the most important parts of camping. Then around 11 the boys took off down Porcupine Rim.



There they go!



As the boys were biking, Claire and I climbed up this huge rock, ran a few errands in town, saw this cool jeep driving down a crazy steep hill, and hiked up Negro Bill's Canyon to Morning Glory Bridge.



This picture was taken from underneath morning glory bridge. It was very cool! A nice little hike, oh and I can't forget to mention that we had to cross the river 14 times! 14!



After our hiking and their biking, we drove over to Arches and booked it to Delicate Arch. We wanted to make it before sunset. Mission accomplished. Delicate Arch was amazing.



After this we headed back to camp and made dinner, dutch oven lasagna and then took down camp and drove home. Yum! Overall it was a great little weekend get a way! We had a great time!
