Moab Meanderings

We had a wonderful weekend in Moab, joining Bethany and family and friends for the Canyonlands Half Marathon. The Rock, DesertBound and girlies also joined us.
This is a sample of the gorgeous blue agate (chalcedony) that is found on the Delicate Arch trail. There are boulders upon boulders of this agate plus other colors ranging from cream to red and all shades of blue.

Guardian of the Delicate Arch

Kevin and Carol joined us and had their own adventure of taking the "lower" trail from the arch. I snapped a lot of photos. Carol: "I didn't know you were taking pictures."

The second night we had the house to ourselves and the carpet was installed while we attended the race.
Don't have to be concerned about any neighbors watching you use the jetted tub. Hmmmmm.

Didn't get a photo or video of Bethany in the race. She breezed by so fast and unexpectedly, didn't get a chance to turn the camera on. On Sunday, we hiked the Fiery Furnace with Bethany, Castaway and Mitch as our guides. The Waggoners and Kevin and Carol joined us. Took us 2 hours, no wrong turns and even had a few side trips to the Natural Arch and Surprise Arch.

As we gazed out upon the horizon someone said, "Oh, look a Wise Woman in the distance." I replied with...."There are wise women all around us in this group."

Great fun, great people and beautiful scenery. The temperatures were perfect for these hikes.
