Moab, UTah

After eating breakfast and putting things away it was around 9:30 am. We left the Grand Plateau RV Park and made our way to ICamp Green River. It took us about 5 hours of driving to get there. This is a small Campground and looked like it was getting fixed up. The lots were small, the bathrooms were clean, and bonus they raise chickens and sell the eggs.

Once we arrived at the campground and got set up we headed on over to the Arches National Park. This drive took us at least another hour to get there. Luckily I did not have to drive it. I was able to be the passenger and relax on this part of the drive. I do not have any idea as to which pictures were taken the day/night that we arrived at ICamp Green River but I have a bunch of pictures below for everyone to enjoy.

The next day we arrived at Moab Giants and visited the dinosaurs. We had a great time pretending to be eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex and running away from other carnivorous dinos. As we walked along the trail we were also able to read about the different plagues telling about each of the dinosaur species. At the end of our learning trail, there was a play structure the kids climbed on and ran around to wear off some energy.

My son enjoying being eaten a little to much
Save me.
Help! Help!

We made our way through the store and bought some T-shirts. I was able to herd the rugrats to the van without getting anything. My husband called us back in and had us pick out a t-shirt each.  Learning about the dinosaurs complete we made our way to the Arches.

As you can see from the pictures above we all had the best time at the Moab Giants. The kids were able to run around and use their imagination and learn at the same time. This place is so interactive that funschool is easy to do.

Just love taking pictures of them at the signs

The first stop is the visitors center. We did a lot of exploring and learning in there. I love stopping by the visitor’s centers they help with teaching the kids how the earth forms the different rock and canyon formations. They also help with us just being able to enjoy the majestic impressive colors and views of the cliffs, canyons, and colors.

This pic was taken on our way to a big arch you’ll see that just below.

Funny story we got at least halfway down to the big arch that is just below and my youngest says “I have to pee!” Now we asked just before we started the walk if they all needed to use the Vault. The answer was a “NO”. Lo and behold it was a, yes only we did not find that out until we were quite a ways down the path! Poor dad had to pick her up and run her to the parking lot where the outhouse was.

Meanwhile, the two oldest and I continued on our way, and Kaarina sat just under the arch for me to take a picture. Luckily she is one to sit so I can take the picture without having a panic attack that she is going to tumble to her death.

I have pictures of all three of them on my cannon but felt that this one is good enough. When it came to my youngest being up there I about had a heart attack. She moves around and climbs way too fast for my liking.

I just like how the lighting is in this picture. The girls and dad were up there and I was able to capture the Arche in the background.
They have plagues in this area explaining how this land was used before it became a part of the national park. If you look closely you will be able to see a trail where vehicles drove.
One last picture before leaving the park
This place was on our way to the Delicate Arche.
It is neat to imagine what it is going to look like 20 years from now.

This was amazing to see in person. I loved that we were able to hike up to Delicate Arche. This landmark in Utah stands from 42 ft tall to 32 ft wide. The trailhead starts at the wolf ranch parking lot and is a 1.5-mile trip up to the Arch. The trail, in the beginning, is flat with a gradual incline up. Then it becomes steep the further you go. There’s not much shade to stop and cool off a little. Water is necessary to bring along and do not forget about snacks for the littles they tend to get hungry after a hike.

This concludes our sightseeing in Moab Utah. Onto Thermopolis Wyoming. I need to do better with recording what we do and where we go. If you have any tips and tricks let me know. I am open to improvements.

Thank you everyone for stopping by to read/look at the pictures please like your comment below. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
