We didn’t spend all of our time in Arches, just most of it. We took several nice drives including a couple of trips on Rt 128 as well as the La Sal Loop Rd. which was literally right outside our RV Park. Officially the La Sal Mountain Loop State Scenic Backway, it is a beautiful drive into the mountains SE of Moab that takes you down Castle Valley and spits you back out onto Rt 128. Think windy mountain roads with nice drop offs (and views!) with a bit of cattle in the road every now and then. Keeps you on your toes.

We did a quick drive through Canyonlands, but that place is so vast it really needs more time than we were willing to give it this time. Shockingly, we didn’t make it to Dead Horse State Park. Next time, for sure.

And after this, it just keeps on getting better.
