Getting to Moab Utah
Moab, the only Utah town located on the Colorado River, is located in a remote part of the nation. This can make getting to Moab a bit of a challenge, though it is well worth it.
The area is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts as well as a geological wonderland. The town of Moab is nestled in a valley with the 12,000 foot La Sal Mountains on one end and the mighty Colorado River on the other. All of this is surrounded by 1,000 foot red rock cliffs and breathtaking, rugged desert terrain.
