Condo in Moab Mid – Feb.

While our neighbors in Colorado have been getting pummeled with one snowstorm after another it’s been rather beautiful at the condo in Moab.  This coming week it looks like temperatures in the high 40s to mid 50s with sunny skies as far as the eye can see. This makes those beautiful colors in the red rocks pop out even more than usual especially with the sun still low in the sky.

Reservations are filling up for the months of March, April, May and June. However, there is still some good availability if you come during the week instead of on the weekend. Our favorite time to visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks is Monday through Thursday when there are smaller crowds.

We highly recommend that you arrive at the park entrance either before 8:30 AM or after 4 PM. You can take your chances anytime in between. However, some of the longest lines to get into the parks generally take place between 9 AM and 1 PM.  Please keep in mind that both of these national parks are rather primitive.  

You’re not going to find much of anything in the way of services, food, gas or anything else you would normally expect to be able to purchase.  You can sometimes buy sandwiches and snacks in one corner of Canyonlands.  But, you won’t find anything other than books, maps and a few souvenirs at the Arches visitor center.

Make sure that you start your day very prepared and fully self-contained. That means packing all of the food and water that you will need for the entire day along with extra clothing. Fill up the gas tank, put on sunblock and let someone know where you’re going if you are planning to travel off road.

If you are staying at the condo in Moab you will drive right past City Market and the accompanying gas station on your way to both Arches and Canyonlands. They have a great deli which makes yummy sandwiches and has all the fixings you need for a delightful picnic.  With such a great variety to choose from you will be sure to enjoy a wonderful day in the great outdoors surrounding Moab

After we get through a bit of stormy weather today at the Moab condo it looks like a nice sunny week ahead.  Check out the weather forecast

A good sized winter storm is making its way through the Intermountain West. However, only the southern end will clip the Moab area. So, after things clear off we will have clear sunny weather for the most part along with a few clouds interspersed here and there. Daytime temperatures will be in the 40s. When you put it all together it means a terrific time to see the beautiful colors at both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

Now I know what some of you are thinking. It’s way too cold to be wandering around red rock country. Well if you bundle up and have shoes with good traction (or wear) ice trekkers you can make your way to most of the sites without too much difficulty. You won’t have to fight the crowds; in many places you might have a nice stretch of the park all to yourself.

At the Moab condo we are doing the annual heavy cleaning of the entire property. This means moving all of the furniture and getting into all of the nooks and crannies to make the place sparkling clean for the first arrivals of 2020. We pride ourselves on having a terrific housekeeping staff. So, if you ever find anything amiss please contact our property manager immediately and they will set things right pronto.

Reservations are starting to fill up for the spring of 2020. If you are thinking of coming anytime between March and the end of June now is the time to book the Moab condo. Some of the prime weeks are already taken.
