Moab, Utah is one of the most interesting places in the world! With some of the best stargazing at night, and many beautiful national parks in close proximity, Moab is sure to impress visitors of all ages and passions.
Our trip to Moab was during the winter months. Though it was colder, there was still little snow in the area. According to my research despite being located in Utah, one of the most notorious snow capitals of the country, Moab actually stays relatively dry & mild throughout the winter months. Some other great things about winter were that the parks were very uncrowded and we had a much less crowded view of these beautiful parks.
My favorite park was arches national park. There are hundreds of beautiful arches that are mysteriously carved into the giant rocks of the area. These arches are amazingly beautiful and some of them seem to appear as if they will fall at any moment. My favorite arch was the Landscape Arch. Landscape arch can be found below.
The hiking in the Moab national parks is second to none. The sandstone rocks grip your boots. It literally feels like your hiking on a skateboard. The parks are littered with what they call a “rim walk” which features a walk along a canyon rim. These walks are semi-exposed but are still very safe as you don’t have to go right next to the edge.
We visited Arches National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, and two of the three regions in the vast Canyonlands national park. As I said, arches was my favorite by a large margin so I would definitely recommend saving that for your last day. Always have to save the best for last! I would also recommend spending at least one full day at each national park. We stayed at a Yurt in Dead Horse Point state park and it was an experience I would definitely recommend to anyone.
