Moab Area: So Much to See!
Utah is beautiful! I've been in Moab, Utah, for the last few days. Every morning when I step out of the RV and see those red cliffs, I'm impressed by the beauty. My husband and I have visited Arches National Park with the arches and windows (top photo).
We visited Canyonlands National Park where we stopped for a picnic lunch.

The next day, I ran 11.5 miles with some hillwork included - so tiring!
We camped near Arches National Park last night at Big Bend campground beside the Colorado River. We didn't have any wifi, or RV hook-ups, but it was nice and peaceful there and I got some cleaning done.
We visited Goblins State Park today. Fun to see those rock formations! Our Weimaraner liked walking through them, too.
Today I ran in one of the best places I've run during this whole trip. That's saying a lot because I've run in many gorgeous places since we've been traveling in our RV for about 3 months! Today's run was a 7 miler at Capitol Reef National Park. My husband dropped me off at Slickrock overlook and I ran down the main road through the park. I carried a walkie talkie (no phone service) in order to get in touch with him when I finished. The run was quiet and beautiful. The first 5 miles of the run were downhill and I kept the pace fast. I hope it will help to prepare my legs for my next race...
I think I'll register for the Arizona Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stagecoach Line 55K trail race on September 26. I'm afraid of getting lost, the wild animals and the mountain running, but sometimes it's fun to do things that scare you!
