Day 6 - Friday, June 27

Welcome to Moab, the outdoor activity capital of Utah. You can do it all here: helicopter, jet boat, horseback riding, ATV, jeep, segway, camping, hiking... and river rafting.

We walked into Moab Outdoor Adventures at 9pm last night and booked a trip for 8am this morning. Our tour guide Parker took us through class 1 and 2 rapids on the Colorado River. In between the rapids we played games, where Cheryl, Chris, and Jim ended up falling in. We had a Jr. High and High School youth group traveling down the river with us. Needless to say, not only did we get wet by the river, we also got caught in the cross-fire between the youth group rafts! LOL! It's all in fun!

Here is a photo of our raft that the tour company took from shore.

After getting cold and wet, we headed to Arches National Monument to warm up. We did some hiking up to the arches, in >100F weather. It was beautiful!!!

Well, we are on our way home. Tonight we are staying in Beaver, UT, right off HWY 15. We may stop at Las Vegas tomorrow, or we may make the entire drive home. We take it one day at a time... LOL! Good night everyone!
