Moab, Utah: One of Our Favorite Places

Looking for an unreal landscape with tons of free and scenic boondocking?  Check out one of our absolute favorite areas; Moab, Utah.  Specifically check out Canyonlands in the Needles District.

To test out our new purchase, Koopa the Isuzu trooper, we tried a little off-roading for the first time on the Canyon Overlook 4×4 Road that starts from the Needles Visitor center.10308140_10205090737880350_6170566085326972204_n

Poor Tuco wasn’t loving the bumpy ride but the rest of us had a blast and a few close calls.  With Zac behind the wheel, and myself jumping out to help guide Koopa over some of the bigger rocky areas, we made it!

This place will always hold a special place in our hearts and I’m sure we’ll be back soon!
