desert vacation in moab, utah

Kate ParrishComment

i've been holding back on my moab post for a while now... being that we took over 500 pictures, it has been hard to choose which ones to share with you people. we had such an amazing time double dating w/ martha and jc out in the beautiful utah desert. highlights include:

our teeny tiny plane that i managed *not* to have an anxiety attack on {curtsey}, the brewery, the weird little music festival, desert bistro, hiking fiery furnace with rick, lunch ateklecti cafe followed by grocery shopping at two amazing local shops: ye old geezer and moon flower, an impromptu hike to delicate arch for myself and kp {hardest hottest hike ever? but worth it!} an epic sunset picnic at dead horse point,  and finally a home cooked meal in our perfect moab cottage.

after boat loads of hiking, we decided to spend our last day canyoneering and rafting {i mean, right?} – red river adventures provided the perfect little private day for us that started by canyoneering down two massive canyons {80ft and 150 ft}, followed by a beautiful hike, a healthy cute little lunch on the river, and lastly a leisurely swim/paddle session down the colorado. it was the best. the rest of our evening was spent relaxing at home and enjoying our new favorite fish, trout, while lounging by the fire and watching the rainclouds roll in.
