Road Trip part 1

Ohhh vacations are so great! Exploring and having adventures! I had the best time on my vacation! I am having a hard time catching up on my sleep but I plan to rest alot this weekend!

So we left Minnesota about 4pm on Thursday the 26th. We drove straight through the first 24 hours all the way to Arches National park in Moab Utah. This was the only night we didn't stop to sleep/camp out. But we did take a few breaks to stretch our legs! This is our first days till we reach Arches. flooding
First glimpse of the Rockies on this trip.

We stopped to grab a pic of all of us as we climbed down from Buffalo Bill's grave site.

Alex and Valdo bought these glasses in the gift shop at Buffalo Bill's and they hardly took them off for the whole trip. Not only do they have mustaches but they flip open on the top too! Silly boys!

We were so high in the mountains I really felt like I could reach out and touch the clouds! It was amazing!

A gorgeous wayside rest we pulled into in Colorado right before we crossed into Utah.
flooding
We arrived in Utah with enough time to check into our RV park and drive the 3 miles back up to Arches to see the park before sunset! It was beautiful!!! So gorgeous! I would reccomend visiting here to anyone heading that way!

They don't call it Arches for no reason. It was full of arches and each one more amazing than the last!
