Favorite thing: When in Moab, visit one of the many national parks such as, Canyonlands, Arches, etc... The natural landscapes with the deep canyons and magnificant plateaus are absolutely breathtaking. Pictures do not even do this place justice. You have to go there in person to fully appreciate it.
Fondest memory: Mountain biking all day, camping all night with a group of friends....nothing better.
Experience the bombardment of...
Favorite thing: Experience the bombardment of jeeps and 4X4's in Moab during the Easter Jeep Safari. This is sponsored by Red Rock 4-Wheelers, Inc, P.O. Box 1471, Moab UT 84532-1471. I happened to be in Moab during the Jeep Safari week in '97 and it was overwhelming how overrun the town became with all types of 4X4's. The safari is organized and there are certain trails that are driven on particular days. I didn't take part in the safari but it was still exciting to be there. Accommodation will be difficult to find so book early if you will be there at that time. If you want to rent a 4X4, book that early as well.

Float the Green River. ...
Favorite thing: Float the Green River. Stillwater Canyon offers the last 52 miles of calm water on the Green as it winds through Canyonlands National Park and meets the Colorado River. As you leave the launch point at Mineral Bottom you can look forward to scenery on the grandest of scales. You may visit the ruins and rock art sites of Ancient Puebloan Indians who vanished from this area hundreds of years ago. There are a lifetimes worth of off-river exploration possibilities including access points into the Doll House and the Maze, Canyonlands most remote district. Throughout your trip the possibility of discovering your own desert paradise is limited only by your desire to find it.
Visit Arches National Park. ...
Favorite thing: Visit Arches National Park. You'll have to drive to make it through all of the sights, but if you want to see the arches up close you'll need to do a little hiking. There are 11 trails that range from .4 miles/.6 km toabout 4 miles/7 km. You can find out more by visiting their site online at www.nps.gov/arch.
Fondest memory: Walking the main strip in search of souvenirs, native amercan jewelry and arts and crafts.
