Moab, UT has been on my bucket list since my best friend drove 9 hours to me straight through Utah to Denver. But first, a note on travel and self care.
No matter how much I adore my travel companions or how well we get along, by day 7, I will most definitely grump out on them (sorry!!) and need alone time. I bet you’ve felt the same before! I know this and try to recognize the symptoms before taking it out on them. When traveling with people, know your limits and know when you need your down time and save yourself the headache. You do not need to be and probably should not be with people 24/7 when traveling! It’s fun to be alone sometimes 🙂
Now for the road trip from Arizona to Utah.
Jay and I arrived in Utah in the dark after a long, cranky drive. More snacks would have probably helped my mood. Kinda weird but the Airbnb was much too big for two people. It could easily fit a family and a half! Space is nice but then the Wi-Fi was terrible so we lounged around on the big leather furniture before heading to bed.
Have you seen those baby goat videos trending on Facebook lately? Welp I never would have guessed that I was going to wake up with goats in my backyard! They were so cute and friendly! Piccolo was very confused and wanted to play with them. I hope to own a goat of my own someday.
The WiFi was so bad, I couldn’t get any work done so I went down to CrossFit Moab to get a quick workout in. Everybody was so friendly, I hope to visit them again someday!
Everything felt really good and my coach programmed heavy deadlifts which are my favorite!
After the workout, we planned to grab some sandwiches and head into the park. For some reason, it took the sandwich dudes like 30 minutes to make to sandwiches. We just couldn’t understand. But hey maybe Jay and I were just tired from being on the road for so long our stomachs skewed our view of time, idk.
The Arches were EPIC. I don’t think anything could have prepared me for the size and beauty of these rocks.
I got to climb on HELLA rocks.
I got to rest on some smooth af rocks.
I was slightly disappointed by this small arch.
As we were leaving the park, we decided to make one more detour and it was the best decision ever! There was a double arch and, well, I climbed on it, rested on it and was not in the slightest bit disappointed by this arch. High five for arches!
Have you ever planned a picture and it doesn’t go the way you think it would?
On that note, if you don’t know me personally, I’m going to tell you that I’m extremely graceful and never, ever fall down.
Moral of the story, this was absolutely my favorite part of my road trip.
