Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Lots of pictures tonight from Canyonlands National Park hear Moab, Utah.

The road into the park.

Dusty with two rock formations called the Merrimac and the Monitor in the background.

Beautiful country, this.

A rare sighting of the elusive Kate-person.

No matter what direction you look, there's a photo to be taken.

Blooming prickly pear cactus.

You don't realize how noisy your life normally is until you come to a place like this and can hear nothing but silence.

More prickly pears in bloom.


What can I say? Big rock.

See why they call it Canyonlands?

There is a how-to blogging book called "No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog". Having read the title, although not the book, I've avoided detailing our meals. Besides, what we've eaten on this trip is far less interesting than what we could have eaten, but didn't. In Colorado, we didn't eat buffalo jerky, buffalo burgers, or buffalo meat loaf (with black gravy). Fortunately, the wonderful chocolate shop in Estes Park has not joined the buffalo trend; I don't think I could have handled Double Buffalo Fudge.

In Utah, we haven't eaten Duck Raviolis (or is that Duck!!! Raviolis!!!), Lamb Tacos, Rabbit Sausage with Goat Cheese, Smoked Elk Tenderloin, Pan-seared Caribou medallions with plum, whiskey & habanero demi-glace, or the ever-popular breakfast dish, Pigs in a Pancho. I'll let you know soon what we don't eat in Nevada.

The plan for tomorrow is to go through Arches National Park, then head to Las Vegas for a visit with Dusty's sister, April. Get ready, April!!
