My sisters sure can pick em! The hottest week of the year! 105-106 Fahrenheit.
They had seen so many of my pictures, of Utah's colored formations and canyons, that I had no choice but to take them down to Moab for a couple nites. Quick 3 day trip.
Stopped to see Max and Rick at the base of the Colorado NM on our way down. ( Quality legstretcher pit stop.!!!!) Thanks for the fruit salad!
We came down 128 Cisco/River Rd on the way into Moab. Stop at Fisher Towers and Arches to check in for the Fiery Furnace hike the next day. Perfect thing to do on a 100 + degree day. (Mostly in the shade.) The rest of the day in Arches was pretty hot. Drank gallons of liquid that day.
Island in the sky was pretty comfortable the next day with temps in the high 80's and a nice breeze. We had Mesa Arch to ourself and Grandview point with hardly anyone there either. Got a nice early start. It was 104 F in Fruita Co /105 F in Rifle on the way home. The girls are still in awe of the scenery. I told them they only scratched the surface.
Here's a few pics. I'm looking forward to doing FF hike in the afternoon this Oct. should be different perspective.
