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
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....
