This picture is so typical of the surroundings of Moab in Southeast Utah. First the red sandstone sculpted in mesa or flat plateau, generally graced with canyons, cliffs and weird formations (hoodoos or pinnacles and arches), here shown in Castle Valley. Other examples abound in nearby Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Then a few rivers, here the Colorado (there is also the Green river in Canyonlands National Park) laced with the green of cottonwoods and tamarisk trees. Then alpine ecosystems as islands in the desert, here the Lasal Mountains in the background towards the East (often at the horizon near Moab you also have the Abajos mountains to the South and the Henry's to the West).

- Pros:Ideal for desert hiking, mountain biking, river rafting and 4-wheel-drive vehicles
- Cons:Too touristy
- In a nutshell:I can't wait to be back, beautiful, amazing landscapes!!
Most rivers and creeks you will cross in the Moab area will look very dry. But be very careful! They can become deadly... more travel advice
Driving a jeep or any 4-wheel drive on dirt roads is another popular "sport" in the Moab area. There are lots of roads... more travel advice
