Day 7 — Let the Trail Riding Begin
One word can describe everything you need to know about today. “ABSOLUTELY.” It was absolutely some of the most beautiful topography of God’s Creation Karen and I have ever seen; it was absolutely one the “HOTTEST” days I have been in during my 60 years on this beautiful earth. You did notice the capitalization in hottest? However, even the heat could not take away from the rock formations and sights we were able to see today.
Just to let you know, it was 112 degrees as were riding trails across the Moab desert. This is a different kind of heat — I drank 5 bottles of water and or Gatorade during roughly 6 six hours on the trails and trust me that wasn’t enough. When we returned to the RV park I drank two more and finally started feeling like a human being again.
During my suave time, all I did was barley turn the knob — now if you are a plumber you know that means you haven’t got to the hot portion of the suave water. I simply stood and let cold water run all over my head — and we will stop it there for now.
Take a look at just a small portion of our travels today through the desert.
The Monitor and the Merimac were named after the two Civil War battleships. Currently the Monitor is sank in about 220' of water off of the NC Coast in the Outerbanks.
We traveled across the Moab desert to our lunch stop which is a place called Trusher Tunnel — an amazing sight.
These were our three main stops for the days ride. Scroll through below and I will include various pictures of other sights along the way.
If you have kept up with our adventure, you know a few days ago Karen and I experienced a blow out of the right front tire of our vehicle. Take a look at the next photo if you will please as we got out for a short little hike (how crazy was that in 112 degree weather).
We ended up making one more stop which turned out to be a rather interesting piece of history for the Moab desert.
That is all for the day folks. I think you can easily see why the word “absolutely” or even better; “awesome” is only fitting for the day. Let me close as always: GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME!!
