Vacation in Moab, Utah

After a long three months living and working at camp, we took off on vacation! We traveled through several states and national parks, but our favorite leg of the trip was Moab! Currently, my favorite landscape is red dirt canyons, so I was in paradise. 😍 We needed to relax, find a little adventure, and feel rejuvenated—our goals were absolutely met in Southern Utah. 🧡

My fascination started a few years ago when I had a connecting flight in Salt Lake City and could not believe the view out the airport window. I felt like I was in a valley surround by red dirt mountains capped with snow, in a way I could not believe. Now getting to spend several days during summer, my dream is reality!

We’ve driven through in the past at night with snow. We doubled back the next day to see Arches National Park, but again, lots and lots of snow. So we hoped in the future we would be able to spend time in the area. Moab is a few hours south of SLC, and we chose this destination because it has a couple national parks close by, and especially because we found cheap accommodations.

We discovered KOAs (Kampgrounds of America) are our new favorite way to camp. It’s like a cheap resort for tent camping (or RVs, or cabins). We couldn’t believe the amenities we had at the KOA Holiday while tent camping for such a low price! Nice swimming pool and hot tubs, fire pits, local bathrooms, laundromat, shaded area at the campsite, store, lawn games. It may sound general, but when used to tent camping in the forest with only an outhouse—it’s a huge step up!

Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Colorado River Recreation Area were BEAUTIFUL. We were awestruck everywhere we looked. The KOA was surrounded by these gorgeous views as well. I definitely recommend this area as a vacation destination, and the national parks as a must-see.
