What a pleasure to leave the desert and sandstone mountainous landscape and get into Moab. Utah was never on our radar but we were pleasantly surprised by the scenery particularly seeing some greenery for a change. We spent a little time and Moab and it looked like a fun town. Then we went out to Red Cliffs...right on the Colorado. This is a first class destination which is about 12 years old. There is a main lodge with bar and dining overlooking the Colorado river...very well staffed, helpful and pleasant. The rooms were very spacious with two queens, large bath and then step down to a sitting area and kitchen. Opens to a small patio, split rail fence overlooking a creek and large open pasture for their horses which came to greet us in the morning.
A lovely setting...with a winery ( of sorts) and horse back riding. Had dinner and wine tasting which was nothing fancy but they did have a very good breakfast buffet. If you go, be sure and wander over to the corral and talk with the folks and watch them ride...better yet take a ride.
We all agreed that Red Cliffs was worth a return visit...give it a try , you wont be disappointed.
