As we enter the last week of August it’s still pretty hot in the Moab area. But autumn is just a few weeks away and that brings quite a bit of relief on the thermometer. The Moab condo rental is still available for Labor Day weekend. However, overall the month of September is about two thirds booked as of this writing.
Both September and October
are prime times to visit Arches and Canyonlands
National Parks. You can still enjoy nice
sunny days and pleasantly warm temperatures without the scorching heat of the
summer months. Also, the crowds tend to
be a bit less than what you would encounter in May and June.
The Moab condo rental comes equipped with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday. You’ll find a good-sized kitchen with all the necessary cookware and small appliances. Coffee maker, toaster, microwave, 5 burner stove and a large oversized oven in case you’re thinking of roasting a giant turkey.
It looks like the final phase
of construction at Rim Village Vistas will be completed in 2020 or 2021. The remaining units are selling quickly. If you have any interest in purchasing a
condo in the complex please contact me and I will put you in touch with the
One of the great things about the Moab condo rental is the floor plan. The open and spacious downstairs level contains living, kitchen and dining areas along with the powder room. You have direct access into the kitchen from the garage which makes unloading groceries very easy.

ceiling. The sliding glass door leading
to the balcony provides a fantastic view of the mountains and red rock
scenery. There are 3 closets in the
master suite providing plenty of storage space for all of your clothes and

Things are pretty quiet this
week at our Moab vacation rental.
Sizzling summer temperatures keep a lid on the crowds during the month
of August. Even if you love to go river
rafting the heat in the canyons can be really intense. While it can feel great jumping in the water,
you can still get dehydrated pretty quickly while floating in the raft.
There is a slight chance of
thunderstorms the next few days. This
means the potential for flash flooding if you are in the canyons. Otherwise it’s just going to be hot, hot,
hot. Daytime temperatures over 100° with
nighttime’s only getting down to the high 60s or low 70s. This means balmy evenings to enjoy outdoors
on the patio at the Moab vacation rental.
The complex where the condo
is located is going through his final phase of expansion. It looks like phase 7 will be completed
during the next 24 months. Sales of new
condos have been moving along rather swiftly.

There are a number of
different ways to get to the Moab vacation rental. If you live more than 5 or 6 hours away
driving time you may wish to consider flying into either the Moab or Grand Junction airports. You could rent a car and save yourself a lot
of travel time. It’s less than 2 hours
from Grand Junction to Moab. And the
airport is located about 1.5 miles from the interstate on-ramp.
Planes do not operate into Moab all year-round. It can be too hot in the summer or too cold and icy in the winter. However during the peak spring and fall seasons there is generally regular service via Denver and / or Salt Lake City. Flight schedules change each year and it’s possible that other airports might be added with connections to Moab.
The annual summer monsoon has
been making occasional visits to the condo in Moab recently. Expect thunderstorms on and off the next
several afternoons along with daytime temperatures approaching 100°. This is typical for this time of year. So, it’s best to get an early start in the
morning to make the most of your outdoor activities.
Photographers know that the
best light is usually early or late in the day.
With sunrise being at a little bit more reasonable time now, you can
capture those morning photos of the brilliant red rocks. Once the sun moves high in the sky after 9 AM
the colors start to wash out a little bit.
Sunset photos are great! But if we get afternoon thunderstorms you may
or may not get dramatic colors. Mother
nature can be very fickle. While the
monsoonal moisture and attendant drop in temperature is a welcome relief from
triple digit weather, the dark clouds can mask whar would have otherwise been a
We are just entering the
start of the Perseid meteor shower
which is expected to peak around August 12 or 13. If you go just South of town away from the
ambient light you should be able to get a good view of meteors streaking across
the sky. From the condo in Moab head
south on the highway for about 10 minutes to escape the local ambient light. The best hours to view meteors are between
midnight and 4 AM when the sky is the darkest.
Make sure you are dressed warmly as desert night time temps can drop
significantly, especially under clear skies.
