Chillin’ with friends and pups on the Colorado
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!
