Day 104: 11/5/17  A car is much more efficient than walking, I’ve learned!

November 13, 2017

 



Miles: 3.2
Steps: 8,048
Vertical gain:    661 feet
Liquid consumed:   100 oz.
Wildlife: Lots of people in Arches National Park
Faith in Humanity: Saw a ton of people running a marathon near Moab. Quite inspirational!

Well another day of lots of driving.  Mostly around the back roads in the greater Moab area!  First I went to a road outside of the Needles district in Canyonlands National Park that’s supposed to be 2WD for 40 Miles.  It really wasn’t so I turned around rather quickly.  Gorgeous scenery!

Next I went up Near Hurrah Pass and there was a marathon going on.  I felt bad driving on the road kicking up a bit of dust, but went slow to minimize my annoyance.  More amazingly  scenic terrain! Moab is unreal!

Next I went up the Castle Valley which was again unreal!

The next part of my day was awesome!  I had a bit of extra time so decided to drive into Arches National Park and go hike Delicate Arch!  Amazing to get some exercise, see a ton of people, and Delicate Arch is stunning!  Crazy thing happened too!  I ran into Gypsy, the woman who drove the tour bus in Mesa Verde National Park when I was there a couple weeks ago!  So cool and random to see her there!  Awesome!  Nice seeing you, Gypsy thanks for the well wishes on my journey!

I splurged for a cheap hotel in Moab as my to do list is long and there’s quite a bit of stiff in the car that needs to be mailed, organized, etc.  I checked in somewhat early and got to work!

Tomorrow I meet Tara at her car then drive her back to Grand Junction and stay with some amazing hosts: Gene and Rita!  The adventure continues!
