Thursday, September 3, 2015 : From Mesa Verde to Moab, Dead Horse Point, Arches

 

roadmap us mark 5 5 us We spend all day surrounded by the stunningly diverse Colorado Plateau limestone formations. What a scenery ! Later in the afternoon, we drive with the open top.
attractions us mark 4 5 us Slight disappointment not to have visited Hovenweep as planned. Wilson Arch is right on the side of US Route 191. The final scenes of Thelma and Louise have been shot at Dead Horse Point. And back to Arches, always as gorgeous.
weather us mark 5 5 us Great weather all day long.
hotel us mark 4 5 us We already knew the La Quinta in Moab. It's the same, but better. The breakfast room has been expanded, which is great.
