This was not only our first stop on the 2012 tour but also our first time in Moab. We stayed at the Moab Valley RV Resort about 2 miles outside of Moab and right next to the Colorado River. Arches National Park was just 1 mile away – with a paved bike path that went on for miles and miles. We see now why everyone comes here to play. We saw mtn. bikers, road bikers, ATVers, rafters and hikers. A very interesting mix of folks to say the least.
Food and wine – while in Moab we had some yummy food at Eklecticafe and Wake and Bake – both on the Main Street. Eklecticafe has great breakfast and lunch – we had huevos rancheros (they will substitute tofu for eggs). Wake and Bake has baked goods, sandwiches and ice cream. We had a smoothie (they will sub soy milk for yogurt). A few miles outside of Moab along the Colorado River was Castle Creek Winery. They have free wine tastings - we bought a bottle of red, sat on the dock along the Colorado and enjoyed watching rafters go by.
The weather was hot in Moab – between 80-90 every day. The RV park had a great saline pool so we dipped in daily. On the drive to Boulder, CO we hit snow and the weather dropped to 29 degrees!
