It looks like spring is going to be a busy time for the condo in Moab. Reservations continue to pour in and there are only about a dozen days still available in total for April and May.
We are even starting to see bookings for the upcoming busy autumn season in September and October. Since Moab gets over 2 million visitors each year it definitely helps to plan ahead especially when it comes to making lodging reservations.
At the condo in Moab we have been getting everything spiffed up for the next incoming guests. This is actually a very new property with construction completed in October 2017. The complex continues to grow with some new two-bedroom units under construction.
It’s been an unusually stormy winter in southeastern Utah. The winds from the latest storm have been absolutely ferocious. While the scenery is still beautiful this time of year weather conditions are not conducive at the moment for most outdoor activities. However, with the arrival of spring just a few weeks away things will warm up and both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks will be very inviting.
One of the most interesting sights to see in this part of the world is Dead Horse Point State Park. This place offers dramatic scenery very similar to what you would find in Canyonlands National Park. Since it’s a state park that is not well known to most visitors it gets a lot less traffic and is very enjoyable.
The hiking trail along the rim near Dead Horse Point is virtually level and easy-to-follow. You’ll get to see spectacular views of the Canyonlands and red rock scenery. At the end of the road is a large parking area with picnic tables some of which are sheltered.
If you are visiting the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands you’ll drive right past the entrance to Dead Horse Point State Park. It is definitely worth the short detour to see this unique piece of land with a somewhat infamous history. The drive door to door from the condo in Moab is approximately 45 minutes depending on traffic and road conditions.
