I just had to share some photos of the different starts and stops along the way to Arches National Park so please ENJOY!
When we left Monument Valley we stopped at a roadside stop ran by the Navajo Reservation.
I bought these beautiful bracelets.
You will see these roadside stands along the way… so try to stop because they do have some beautiful handmade jewelry and pottery.
Down the road we went…
and we saw The Famous Mexican Hat Rock…
Another great tip was shared to me from Ingrid at Live Laugh RV.
She suggested we visit Gooseneck State Park. We were so delighted that we did! Thank You Ingrid!
The San Juan River makes a series of turns through this canyon.The above picture just shows one turn.
I did have a friend come to visit…
Many people camp close to the edge…
to see this.
Newspaper Rock is very close to Canyonlands National Park.
We stopped at an Antique Store in
I of course had to take a photo of their old truck out front.
Bluff, Utah is beautiful.
Please visit Pam and John at Oh, the Places They Go!
They were just there not too long ago and they just posted two or three posts of the Bluff, Utah area.
You know you are getting close to Moab, Utah (home of Arches National Park)when you see this.
We did not stop but heard it is neat.
Here is a closer look.
and here is the Lizard on the Rock…
I got to eat my famous Pan Fried Trout at Moab Grill and had a beer at
The Famous Moab Brewery.
and we finished the evening with delicious ice cream from
Now I promise…
I promise that next time I will post all about Arches National Park!

What a beautiful place to visit! I really need to take a trip to that part of the US again someday. Newspaper rock is quite amazing as well. It would be very interesting to be able to ‘read’ the story, if that is what it is. I am imagining one of those stories where someone starts with a short paragraph and or sentence, and each author adds another taking the story to unexpected places.
I agree! Thank You so Much for stopping by. How’s that quilt coming along??
Very well! I am hoping to get some in later today if all goes as planned.
Beautiful bracelets along with beautiful country. I can’t wait to visit these places in a couple of weeks 🙂 btw…. had a great time yesterday at the botanical garden. Hope to get together one more time before heading north.
Oh I hope we do! 🙂 We had a wonderful time. I also loved lunch!! Yum in my tum!!
You document sooooooowell!
Isn’t this planet of ours astounding?
I wanna go! I wanna go! I wanna go!!!!
Hope you do! Hope you do! Hope you do!
Maybe soon! Maybe soon! Maybe soon…ish 🙂
Love the bracelets!! I use to stop but now I don’t wear the jewelry I have.
Gee, this drive looks very familiar:) It is a beautiful drive from Bluff to Moab. Thanks for the shout out!!
Beautiful shots…beautiful country…I feel a road trip coming on:)
Oh, just you wait… Arches and Bryce photos are coming soon!
By the way… it was a beautiful trip from start to finish!
We spent so many years driving between Denver and San Diego and never stopped there also…I do so feel a road trip coming on:)
Oh Please Do It! I can not believe how beautiful the state of Utah is. I just posted about Arches. So please enjoy my pictures as you get out your road maps and plan that Road Trip! 😀
Gorgeous pics Nancy. I especially like that one with the truck.
I do toooooooo!
Ah this brings back memories. We didn’t find anything affordable to stay in Moab, but we did enjoy eating there, and saying the word “Moab” over and over haha.
We booked way in advance so we had a reasonable rate. Glad you came over for a visit!! 🙂
Newspaper Rock is really intriguing – thanks for sharing it! I’ve never heard of it before. I’d love to see it. About how big is it?
Thanks for stopping by! I would say it was about 30 feet across and 10 feet high. it was definitely something to see!
“And a good time was had by all.’ Gorgeous post start to finish. Newspaper Rock is one of my personal favorites and tells a different story every time I visit.
Oh how I love Newspaper Rock! I have only seen it once… but it is a WOW!
Thank you for enjoying these photos of a pretty place!
