Moab is in eastern Utah and is home to Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse State Park. Driving along I-70 you wonder if you are still on planet earth or if you have landed on Mars, the road twists and turns through the red rocks for miles.
Moab has a lot to offer from hiking, biking, raftering and off-road adventures. We visited Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park, my favourite spot is Dead Horse Point overlook, it’s like a mini Grand Canyon. There is a long list of movies that have used Moab has a backdrop and you can see why, it’s like being in a western movie and you expect to see John Wayne riding by on his horse, the movie ‘Rio Grande’ was filmed at Red Cliffs Lodge (formerly Whites Ranch).
Red Cliffs Lodge is a great place to stay or if you are travelling on a budget, just visit the movie museum. We went for dinner overlooking the Colorado River and the atmosphere and service was outstanding.
