Heavily visited in the summer months, Moab is the gatway to Arches & Canyons National Park and very central from many other National Parks in the area.  The hotels are nothing to write home about, and after our 8PM orientation meeting where we met the rest of our crazy family, we found oursevles at one of Moab’s ‘claim to fame,’ it’s local brewery & restaurant. In Mormon country, you can only have 2 drinks/person at a time, but it’s still beer-tasting and good bar food. Say good-bye to civilization, we’re goners! Oh yes, and the point of all of this? My Aunt Caroline turns 60 this summer, she wanted to have an adventure for her birthday. So my dad, aka Mr. Fix-it, decided to have us all meet up in Moab, Utah.
