Lovely Drive

We drove Route 128, which is about 45 miles long. Very scenic. Only stopped to take photos. Two lane road. Definitely worth seeing. Offers camping and rafting areas.

A couple of years ago I was riding with a group of motorcyclists in western Colorado. We ended up in Utah and we went through the little town of Moab. I made a note to go back and visit that area and this year was the year. Route 128 is a great scenic road that runs along the Colorado River... More

Going north out of Moab and a short distance before Arches N.P. is the turn. The road follows the river towards I-70. A few small, primitive camp grounds along the route. Along the middle to north end are tourist ranches, riding stables. Several put-in and take-out sites for kayak, rubber raft, and such. A paved hiking, bike riding trail from... More

The towering red rock formations go on and on. We would speculate whether this one was an Indian palace or that one was a Crusader Castle. The drive is next to the Colorado river, and on the river sides there are all kinds of camp grounds and boat launches. There is a gorgeous bike path. All in all, this is... More

We were trying to get to the Needles Visitor Center for Canyonlands, but turned into this area. The views and scenery are absolutely spectacular and on par with Canyonlands itself. Nice picnic areas near various camping locations to enjoy a nice (packed in) lunch.

Arrived in town too early to check-in to hotel, so took a drive up the river, happy I did. Very scenic two lane road. Also saw many side excursions if I had the time.

I chose the Sound and Light Show with Dinner tour. A great dinner was served in the dining hall before the riverboat. Good BBQ meats with generous helpings and your choice of foods. This was an excellent trip. The riverboat sound and light show was beautiful and informative. Learned a lot of history. Lee was a great host and presented... More

You won't want to miss the sights as you meander along the river. Stop and examine the photo ops and look at the campsite locations.
