Down the Colorado River in 2016

When we left Grand Junction, there was no availability in Moab so we decided to head to Green River, Utah...only about 90 miles away but....I decided to take a detour and go down the Colorado River road to Moab and then head up to Green River. It's a beautiful drive and only added about 50 miles to our journey. We're sure glad we did ! Once we got to the river, it was spectacular. At the end of the photos is a movie shot out our front window as we drove....worth watching.

Here's the route we took. At Agate we headed south.

The first 45 miles or so was a narrow 2-lane road..kinda rough so we just went slow and enjoyed the "scenery"

Stopped to read the signs.

...and found a large Prairie Dog community. This one was warning the others that we were near.

Heading south to State Highway 128

One in a rare moment, we let Katie ride with me as I drive.

Heading south to State Highway 128

Then we finally got to the road that travels along the Colorado River...enjoy the photos.

Imagine this rock coming down !

The "Castles"

A rest stop along the way.

These cliffs are waaaay above us.

You just don't get scenery like this back east.

MOVIE....About 50 seconds in, it gets real good.

...and our Katie photo....

Looking very attentive.

More Moab entries coming in the days to come....
