Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!
When I was out West in April, I got to drive one of my favorite drives! Rt.128 in Utah is one of the most fun drives you’ll ever have in a car or on a motorcycle. About an hour and half west of Grand Junction, Co. along I-70 is where you’ll find Rt. 128. This is one of the roads that will take you to Moab, Ut and it’s probably the most spectacular route! When you leave I-70 and head south on Rt. 128 the area is fairly flat and level. Off in the distance you can see the La Sal Mountains and after about 15 miles, you reach the Colorado River and that’s where the fun begins! Rt. 128 will follow the Colorado River for the most part all the way down to Moab, Ut. about 25 miles away. The thing that is so much fun is that you are in the canyon of the Colorado River and on either side of you is cliffs that are over 2000 feet high. The colors of the blue sky and the red of the sandstone rock is incredible. By the time you reach Moab, you’re ready to turn around and do it again!
Here’s one of my shots from the drive to Moab, Utah along Rt. 128. In this shot you’ll see the Fisher Towers formation on the left with the snow covered La Sal Mountains in the background!
I hope that you have a great week and thanks as always and thanks for checking out my photo!!!!!
