I added another pin to my world map of places that I’ve traveled to. This pin was for Moab, Utah.

It took me years to see Moab. Literally. My traditional group of camping friends have gone every year for the past 3-4 years during Memorial Day Weekend, and I’ve missed past trips due to prior commitments. But not this year! My man and I packed up Millie [my new car] for the weekend and took the 7 hour road-trip to Utah!

Moab was exactly how I’d pictured it. I stalked endless photos on Pinterest and Tumblr to get some photography inspiration of where we might be camping, but in typical fashion, my tribe of friends found a secluded spot in the middle of NOWHERE. Moab is pretty spread out, so I figured we wouldn’t have to go far. Sounds easy, right? Not so. The spot we were headed to was no easy trek [ie: rugged dirt road, climbing over rocks, white knuckle driving, and you better have good tires and a bad-ass car] But when we arrived, we had the best red landscape scenery for the entire weekend. In my head, I named Moab “Big Red”.

We spent 3 days in the hot sun covered in red dust, but they were well spent. Lots of ATV exploring, rock climbing, sunset watching, cave finding, fire cooking, drinking games, and potato-launching. [we didn’t make Smore’s though… I’m kind of kicking myself, because they made these square-shaped marshmallows specifically for Smore’s and I didn’t use them! Fail.]

There is something very special about Moab though. If you haven’t had a chance to visit, be sure to add it to yo’ bucket list!
