A road trip journal...travels through Utah

On Monday we drove and drove...

Passing beautiful scenery all the way.

This is the girls at a gas station in Utah. Moments before Chloe brushed against a succulent plant and her leg was spurting blood.  Then it swelled a bit.  I stopped the bleeding and gave her a claritin, and...crisis averted.

Before our big day of driving I checked Roadside America's websiteand discovered we'd be passing "Big Rock Candy Mountain" famous for the song that just happens to be Phoebe's favorite song ever since she was four.  Unfortunately we arrived after dark, but we took a picture anyway.
We stayed in Moab, Ut and this sign for Chinese food by the scoop was right outside. We didn't go for it.

Our hotel had some choice bathroom reading...
As we left Moab to go to Arches National Park we came across the incredible spider mural!
It was a perfect day to explore the park....

The hikes were incredible!

The shadow on this cliff face looked like a man.

We were seeing things in all these rock formations though...

There was so much to see.

And so much to climb!
That's Naomi!

There was so much to explore...

The kids loved this place!
Mike seemed to like it too.

It was pretty awesome!  Next stop.... Boulder, Colorado.

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
