we had so much fun on our extended spring break trip to utah. my oldest sister corinne was getting married at the tail end of our trip ( a post of its own..) so we spent a week or so exploring the moab/arches/south-eastern utah area... along with a quick stop in our old hometown vernal utah.
no trip to vernal is complete without a trip to visit the dinosaurs and dino quarry that it's famous for.
our dear friend allison ( who i have known for nearly 30 years) was such a great host. we loved spending time with her family.
slot hiking in arches national park just outside of moab. the kids LOVED this.
dead horse point was pretty neat too. especially the history behind it.
landscape arch is the longest and oldest arch in the park, as long as a football feild and only 6 feet at the most narrow point. the expect it to collapse at any time so we wanted to be sure and see a piece of history. they no longer allow you out near it.
delicate arch! this was my #1 must see. it was mind blowing and way better than i imagined!! i for sure want to go back when i wont have a panic attack worrying about one of the kids rolling over the edge of the cliff!! well worth the effort though!
these jeeps are the EVERYWHERE! i'd love to rent one next time.
we made the trek over to goblin valley on our way back up to salt lake. its the most bizarre place literally out in the middle of nowhere. we felt like we were on mars. another huge hit with the kids. they could have made mud balls and played hide and seek forever.
my sister always drives so that leaves me to be the pbj maker extraordinaire. these trips leave us with great memories.. so thankful we make the effort to take them.
