Day 6 - St. George to Moab

We took the scenic route from St. George to Moab today.  Our nine-hour drive started with a cut through Zion National Park before we spent a lot of time in the middle of nowhere.  Somewhere out there we passed through Monument Valley with a quick stopover at Goosenecks State Park along the San Juan River.  

One of the highlights of the day was seeing a group of Bighorn Sheep on a cliff above us in Zion.  Here's a shot of them as they considered their options.

Here's one of the sheep descending the rock face.  It was amazing how surefooted these guys were.

Monument Valley was interesting.  Aaron thought it was cool to stand where Forrest Gump stopped running.  

Goosenecks State Park shows the power of the San Juan River.  Wow, that was cool!

And then on to Moab where we set up our base-camp (motel) for the next three days, grabbed a sandwich for supper, and then headed to Arches National Park for sunset.  Here's a couple of shots from Arches.
