Moab Monday

It's hard to show a made over feeling.  That's what these Utah vacations do for all of us, though.  Here are just a few of the photos from our trip so far.

No matter how big she gets, there are still plenty of  "Sophie sized caves" around

The Colorado River from our off-road hiking vantage point

A rugged group, rockhounding in the shade of the cliff for the "afternoon adventure".  We usually get out around 8am for our morning trip, come back for pool/lunch/rest, then back out for more fun before dinner.  We know how to navigate this heat!

I hope you enjoyed the photo tour.  No, (Donna, lol) I am not in any of these.  As the *photographer* in the family, I don't see the other side of the lens very often.  I'm hoping to get some whole family photos at some point, though... it's about time for another Moab family Christmas card!

LOL :D :D

I can see you're not in any of these my dear, I haven't a clue as to why you'd think I would ;o)

For nearly a certain age though, your mum does look lovely! I wish to look that good when I get to there! :o)

These are fabulous photos and I've thoroughly enjoyed nosing through them!
There's the Colorado river too!! :)

Sophie seems to be growing up at an enormous rate you know! She is beautiful Jennie.

Your trip looks great. have a fantastic day my lovely :o)

Great photos, and amazing scenery. Why do men always have to go to the edge/climb the highest/freak us out!!? Mine is the same.
