I visited Moab Utah in March 2016 to see Canyonlands and Arches National Park. I flew into SLC and rented a full sized SUV to take me down to Moab. However, Trapt was playing in Salt Lake City that night, so I stayed in Provo. After a short rest, I woke up and drove down to Moab. First up was a drive into Canyonlands.
Canyonlands National Park
The drive through Canyonlands National Park was amazing. The Grand View Point is a must see in person as the pictures do not do it justice. I took the Potash Rd back to Moab, including descending the wall of the canyon in switchbacks. After a very scenic drive, I found myself back in Moab. I thought I’d just swing by Arches and check it out. Turns out it’s a gigantic park with long drive times.
Potash Road at Night
I was tired as could be and fell asleep early, waking up around 3am. I decided to get up and going so I could get late night and early morning lighting shots. I was obsessed with my previous day drive, and wanted to get it in better light. I got some great night exposures with my new full frame Canon 6D and 14mm lens.
Dead Horse Point
I went to the Dead Horse Point after ascending the canyon. Such a spectacular view of the Colorado River below.
I headed over to Arches National Park and spent some of the morning and afternoon in that beautiful park. I didn’t have time to see much, but I did it all before catching an 8 pm flight in SLC.
I visited Moab a few months later with friends here.
