Moab, Utah – RV Road Trip: Six States in Three Weeks Series

My first impression of Moab was personal.  I fell in love immediately.  Maybe it is the stark contrast between our lush, green forests of the Pacific Northwest compared to the red rock and blue skies of Moab.  But whatever it is, Moab is a truly unique and beautiful landscape.  And after one visit you will be hooked too.

I started visiting a few years ago.  Every year, I would actually fly to Salt Lake City and drive down to meet my dad.  My dad and his friends would drive from Texas and Florida in their class A coaches pulling their toys and jeeps used to explore the 4×4 trails.  But this past April, my family and I made Moab one of our last stops on our three week trip.

The RV Road Trip that Changed My Life

Five people.  192 square feet.  Three weeks.  This is the story of how a road trip changed my life.  My family and I left behind our routines on March 30, 2013 to drive through six states.  I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach as we were pulling away from our house.  Our goal was to spend time together, reconnect, see new places, and just have fun together.  It was the best trip of our lives!

Trip Overview

We drove a total of 3,900 miles through Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho.  Family ArchesWhen we were in the planning stages, we wanted to see and do everything.  Initially, we had so many stops on our road trip, that we were only staying a couple nights at each RV Park or campground.  We quickly realized that we needed to cut back on the sights to give us time to really relax and explore at each location.  We can always return later on another trip to see the stuff we missed, right?!

Our trip focused mostly on California, Arizona, and Utah.  In California, we spent time in Big Sur, Sequoia National Park and Disneyland.  Arizona was all about the Grand Canyon.  And in Utah, we stayed in Moab to visit Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse State Park.
