We were sitting in our lounge chairs after work on Monday and started to realize that we only have 1 month left here in Moab. There are so many things that we want to see and do. So panic mode set in for Lisa. So I grabbed a paper bag and put it over her head. Wait, I guess she needed to breathe in it. Actually like two aspiring adults that we want to be, we listed everything that we want to do and put them on little pieces of paper and then we just draw out of the hat. Very scientific. All those nights watching "The Big Bang" is finally paying off for us in our scientific methods.
First adventure (Tues.) was a hike to Landscape arch. Well we had noticed that there is also a loop hike that goes beyond that into what is called the Devil's garden. 7.2 miles beyond.

Adventure number two. (Weds.) Since I tweaked my ankle and Lisa felt her hip was out of place, we decided to take the drive to the southern part of Canyonlands National park. The Needles area. 75 miles one way to get there. If you only have one day to do Canyonlands, go to the Island in the Sky area by Moab. The Needles area is neat, but the views are so much better at Islands.
We drove all the way to the end of the road to see what there was. There are some good views, but apperantly this part of the park is really popular with back-packers.
This part is famous for the needle formations, but you can't get close to them unless you are hiking.
So that is what we did the last couple of days in our dull and boring lives. If you would like a transcript of this blog, write down everything you read. Until the next Blog, "Stay Frosty my friends".
