Dead Horse Point State Park

Travel

On our way back to the northern section of Canyonlands we decided to stop at this state park.  They had a nice visitor center/museum and we took several short walks around the park.

One of the main points of this park – the view!

An “arch” at the state park – I think we are seeing arches in everything now

Someone was having fun making some “cairn markers”

Someone made a vase for the flower

Someone asked how I am keeping an even skin tone – no burn – sunscreen – when we are hiking I put sunscreen on every hour, and I wear a hat.  I am careful about not burning I have been in remission from Lupus for 20 years and too much sun can cause a flare up.

Our time here in the Moab, Utah area is finished.  We leave in the morning 9/29/11 and we are moving closer to the Grand Canyon.  Doubtful I will have internet for the next two days at least so I have been scheduling posts once again.  I will be posting as I can.  This post gets me up to date on all my photos for this area of the trip!

We have actually had tv the last couple days and I was able to watch NCIS yesterday and Criminal Minds and CSI tonight!!  I miss not watching my regular shows every week with the new shows starting.  I like Ted Danson on CSI – so much better than Lawrence Fishburn – he might be a good actor in movies – but I did not like him in CSI and barely watched the show for the period of time he was in it.

Anyone know of a quilt shop in the Grand Canyon area :) I have yet to find something for my birthday!  We will be going through New Mexico after we get done with the Grand Canyon so maybe I can find something while we are going through that state if I don’t find something sooner!

    I’ve really enjoyed your trip, Karen! So has my husband, who visited that area on a college hiking trip out west. He keeps looking at the pics saying, “HEY! I’ve been there!!!” Thanks for sharing the adventure with us!

    Stunning views. I agree with you regarding CSI and Ted Danson. I liked Fishburn, but I love (make that really love) Danson. We didn’t watch the show much after Peterson left. However, after seeing just one show with Danson, I actually think he’s better than Peterson. We’ll be tuning in every week.

    Thank you more wonderful views. There is so much to see!
    Good luck with your fabric shopping but sorry I can’t help you with quilt shops!

    I wouldn’t want to bother with an umbrella for shade – I need my hands free.

    Danson is perfect on CSI!!! Hey, girl, I bought lots of fabric for MY birthday… actually enough for both of us, since we have the same B/D. I didn’t find any shops near the Grand Canyon, but a couple in Wyoming and Montana, so no help to you right now. Keep having fun!!
