Yep, the temps in Moab are unseasonably warm this June. So what do you do when the forecast calls for temps "Hotter than Hades"? Joe III and Jena get up at the break of dawn to get in a 5 mile run/bike ride along the Colorado River...
|Warming up for a run as they leave the resort|
Joe and I had several hikes in mind for the week with Corona Arch at the top of the list and a close second being Delicate Arch. The hot temps put a damper on our hiking so this was the only one we did. The kids enjoyed it and got a small taste of the ginormous size and space of the area.
Our next stop was Barlow's Adventures to pick up a rental 2-door Rubi for the kids. Our ride the night before had sparked their interest to try their hand at some off-roading. Yippe!
So late that afternoon, we headed out to Chicken Corners...
an easy to moderate trail on the south side of town. This was Joe III's first time to drive a jeep!
Joe III rode saddle with us leading and Ronnie and Carol as tail-gunner.
He did a great job absorbing all the information he received, asked lots of good questions, and felt pretty confident as we pointed the jeeps toward home.
The afternoon glow made for a spectacular ride...
Let the good times roll...
Up next...some revenge!
