Evolution of a MoabiteEvolution of a Moabite (09/28/2004) This underpass gives a scientific demonstration of the evolution of a desert rat. Starting with hunched over, squatty tourists like myself we see the evolution from hikingman to gnarly biking dude. The highest state of evolution is the cowboy.

Moab, Utah

Moab is a resort community in South Eastern Utah. The town is adjacent to the Colorado River and has easy access to Arches, Canyonlands and Natural Bridges National Parks as well as access to a wealth of BLM, State Parks and other national treasures. My Moab Tumblr blog includes hundreds of pictures of Moab from multiple photographers.

If you are planning a trip to Southern Utah, I strongly suggest staying in Moab proper. While there is a growning number of parks, camps and condos being built up on the outskirts of town, the town of Moab itself has a great deal to offer. The people of this community have thrown a great deal of effort into making a place that visitors will enjoy staying.

The town is pedestrian and bicycle friendly. Moab is crisscrossed with a network of biking and hiking trails. There are public parks with xylophones and fun instruments, and the trails sport a variety of artworks and historical exhibits. The end result of all this effort is that you have a wonderful compact arts town that is pedestrian friendly.

You can park your car in the motel and walk to a wealth of quality restaurants, museum exhibits, galleries and pubs. Staying in town helps fight the suburban sprawl that can kill the scenic value of this area. I really think you will have a fun time parking the car and staying in town.
