    I rained yesterday, so we didn't want to go out on a trail today. So we took advantage of the fact that there are few people around and played tourist and drove through Arches National Park. Few people/cars in the park, we could pull over anywhere we wanted, it was nice. Beautiful day.

    Today it was super windy, so we took the Raptor up the Shafer trail past the potash fields and then up into Canyonlands National Park. There we played tourist and drove through. Windy, cool but at least sunny.

    Sorry to report that our liberal Mayor (Moab) and county commissioner has convinced the National Parks to close. So effective today both Canyonlands and Arches National Parks are completely closed. Good thing we did both in the last week. Fortunately, while they are kicking people off BLM land for camping, they have not closed other trails yet. Weather is still no cooperating, but next week looks better.

    It was the perfect day in Moab. Not a cloud in the sky and it ended up at 73 degrees. We took the RZR and did the "Poison Spider" trail (which seems to get rougher every year) and then cut over and did the "Where Eagles Dare" trail. There we end up at the overlook looking down at Corona Arch (maybe we should rename it to Virus Arch). As you can see the LaSalle Mountains have plenty of snow still on them.
