It looks like 2019 is going to be a good year for the condo in Moab. Located just 5 minutes south of downtown you have easy access to everything in red rock country.
We have seen several new bookings in the past week. As of this writing the only open dates from March 15 to June 7 are as follows:
April 3, April 21 – 24, May 14 – 16, May 20 – 25, June 1 – 3
Autumn is a great time to visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. If you visit the area during fall you’ll find more pleasant temperatures than in mid-summer. Water levels will have dropped from their spring time highs making some stretches on the rivers safer for rafting (or maybe too tame in some cases).
The condo in Moab already has a couple of reservations in September and October. So it’s advisable to book ahead if you want the best selection of dates to fit your vacation schedule. The lower angle of the sun makes for excellent photos at sunrise and sunset. And you won’t have to get up super early for sunrise like you would if you came to visit in May or June.
Another good thing about visiting in autumn is that you won’t have to contend with the cold weather and snow that will arrive in December. The current winter has brought some good snow storms and can have an impact on facilities, services, roads and other things that could impact your visit.
Arches has a special winter update page that is worth visiting if you are planning a trip before the middle of March.
No matter what time of year that you stay at the condo in Moab it’s always good to plan ahead. There is still some concern that we could see another Federal government shutdown in mid-February. This would most certainly affect operations at both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
