Moab, UT in the News

Think Moab's just a spring/fall destination? Think again! James Shea of calls spending Thanksgiving in Moab "magical."

We were headed to Mesa Arch. The rock formation sits at the edge of a giant mesa in Canyonlands National Park. The mesa, called Island in the Sky, overlooks a vast canyon that was carved out by the Colorado River. It resembles the Grand Canyon, with sheer cliff and rock walls.

The full moon cast a bluish glow as we hiked. The snow radiated the light. We did not need headlamps, as the moon provided all the light we needed. The juniper trees and pinion pines looked strange and ominous in the nighttime effulgence.

Photo gently yanked from photographer Tom Till's web site.

You can read the full article here. And remember, the best way to get around in our fair "magical" paradise is to call Acme Shuttle: 435-260-2534.

Happy Holidays!
