Moab October '09

Had to have lunch at Munchies in Fruita--it would be closed when
I came back through on Sunday....

Then back through Grand Junction and on to Whitewater to drive
the Unaweep Canyon--one of Colorado's most scenic byways.

As I dropped down to Gateway on the Dolores River, there was
a micro-storm dumping


I toured the auto museum at Gateway--see http://www.gatewayautomuseum.com for more information. Then time to head towards Moab--the back, back way. Up John Brown Canyon from the Dolores



After a few miles the canyon gets steep and then the road switches back to climb up and out

Up and out to the east side of the La Sal Mtns

Snow dusting the high La Sals

Here is the state line--entering the "Zion Curtain"--as they call it in Fruita

On to the next adventure....
