Staying in the Valley of the Gods

After our Petroglyph hikeย and our visit to Goosenecks, we had some time to relax at The Valley of the Gods B&B, so I took a moment to snap a few photos of the glorious afternoon.

Goosenecks

Goosenecks State Park

As if seeing those amazing petroglyphs on our hike earlier in the day weren’t enough, we then make a pit stop at Goosenecks State Park. Now, I’ve definitely seen photos of this area before, but I truly didn’t even know where they were taken AND that we were so close to this area too. What […] Read more…

Day 4 of our vacation brings us FABULOUS weather. The sun is shining, the views from the B&B are spectacular, we’re rested and ready to get out there and hike.

We continue on Day 2 of our trip where we head to Dead Horse Point State Park after visiting Arches National Park. Dead Horse Point is located outside of Moab at an elevation of about 6,000 feet….and more importantly, the views along this high plateau, 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, are just amazing! I’m […] Read more…

Arches National Park

Arches National Park

Here we go with Day 2 of our trip to Southern Utah….I’m splitting this day into 2 posts because, well, we saw 2 very distinct areas and thought they deserve to each have their own spotlight. We begin the day with another fabulous breakfast in Moab here at Eklectica: I must say, I’m really loving […] Read more…
