With no snow in Summit County and feeling a bit burnt out after 40 or so days snowboarding before the new year, I decided to zip down to Moab, UT for a quick mountain biking and photography trip. I didn’t really have much of an agenda except to ride the Slickrock Trail (the mountain biking trail in Moab, kind of a Mecca for fat tire bikers) and check out Arches NP. I left a bit late (naturally) on Tuesday morning, headed down I-70 to Utah.
My companion and trusted co-pilot, Soph-dog.
Always a high light of the drive west, though sometimes nerve wracking, Glenwood Canyon.
Another favorite place, but only a quick stop for gas this trip (less than $3.00 per gallon!).
Spent pretty much the next hour or in awe.
Balanced Rock is on the left.
I love shooting these starbursts.
Windows area. I spent two nights around here.
Leading lines… pretty obvious here.
I was pretty much in love at this point.
So that was my first hour or so in Moab and Arches National Park. I’ve got more photos, but for now I need to get some sleep so I can get to work in the morning. It takes a bit to process all the images from the Raw files to jpgs I can upload to wordpress. Look for more soon.
