On the Ranch - Colorado River Scenic Byway, Utah

Sorrel River Ranch, Colorado River Scenic Byway, Moab, Utah

If it is summer time, I am usually spending some time planning out my trips for the following year. I try to include some favorite places as well as some new ones to visit. While not every trip has been determined, I know one of them will be to Moab in March with my great buddies, Jeff Clow and Jaki Goode Miller. Moab has long been a favorite of mine, being near two great national parks (Arches and Canyonlands), as well as the fabulous Dead Horse State Park. The lesser known gem is River Road (aka Colorado River Scenic Byway) that follows along the Colorado River. There is a special added attraction for me, as I first visited this area with my son back in 2004 when he graduated college. We spent two weeks hiking and shooting throughout Utah. One of our favorite places was when we stayed at the Sorrel River Ranch pictured here and had a great stay despite the mice scampering across the room. These memories always stay with me whenever Moab comes to mind.
