Chalk this one up to the power of the 30×30 list because this trip was SOOOO close to never happening. The list prevailed though, and I’m so glad it did. After 4.5 years in Colorado, we finally made the trek to Moab, UT. Quirky Moab is just across the Utah/Colorado border and its a fairly popular destination for weekend trips from Denver. Attractions include two national parks, biking, rafting, climbing, and impressive scenery everywhere .
This was our first stop of the trip and another first for the Johnsons. We usually take the shorter and faster tunnel, but in the spirit of adventure we drove up and over Loveland Pass.
