I'm a little late in posting this but thanks to all who helped me plan this trip. After putting together our journal for this trip I realized I should have put this trip report into two different (or maybe 3) parts so those interested in Colorado only don't have to read about Utah and vice versa. However for this time you need to just skip over those parts you might not be interested in. My journal is about a southwest trip we took including Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, and Moab and includes lots of photos taken along the way.
We took this trip in the fall of 2017, and were gone for a total of about 6 weeks, 4 weeks in Colorado and Utah.
