At one point the road became very muddy and churned up by cows, and the driving was quite interesting at times ( We were glad we had a 4x4).

We passed through Ute which only had 1 occupied house, and a load of abandoned huts, a few miles later the road improved , we continued west on the 90 on a proper road once we reached the power station at Nucla. We drove along the 90 a dead straight road, which the climbed to the Utah border and the La Sal mountains, and the junction of the 191.

Moab Once we started to descend from the La Sals the temperature outside started to get higher until it at a comfortable 75f. Just what we needed to defrost after cold Colorado. Moab

We arrived at Moab and went to the apartment we had booked a great 3 bedroom place, with its own double garage, 2 bathrooms etc. I then headed off to the slickrock trail and rode the practice loop, while Clare had a swim in the pool.

We had dinner at the Moab Brewery which was excellent.
