1st trip
Partners none no partners
spent thursday at island in the sky district
planned for an easier day doing the shorter hikes and overlook trails
mesa arch:
short loop to a classic arch
great views east through the arch
whale rock:
short ascent to a high hump that looks kinda like a whale
good views of interesting terrain
upheaval dome overlook:
a decent hike with some ups and downs on a fun trail
went to the second overlook that had good views into the crater
hit the first overlook on the way back, but the second one was better and made for a more interesting hike
had lunch at green river overlook
grandview trail:
followed a long neck of land between two drop-offs to the east and west
best views of the day on both sides with some rocks to climb up on at the end
could have added a couple more little things, but with a big hike friday, we just hit a few more overlooks and headed back to moab
got a cuppa coffee for the drive to monticello
spent thursday and friday nights at the monticello inn
monticello = twilight zone
had dinner at the peace tree juice café
limited menu but pretty good food
a fun, relaxing day with a decent overview of island in the sky
