If you stay in the Moab area and have the time to see Fisher Tower after Arches and Canyonlands, don't miss Fisher Tower, and enjoy out of this world views.

Though there is plenty you can do to wear yourself out, we drove this on a recovery day after tough hiking. Fisher Towers has a short little photo trail, and Rocky Rapids is a pretty place to see the river rushing along. Lots of places to pull off the road and just enjoy the views of canyons and water.

Started out following the Colorado River and took the turn off to Castle Valley. Very pretty valley - very green, very peaceful as we continued up to the Manti LaSal Loop.

We kept passing this turnoff on our way to the Sorrel River Ranch, so we took it one day and found ourselves in a little town in the valley between two mountains. Basically one road with little side streets. Picturesque, but nothing to rave about. No city planning so the houses are scattered all over. You can live there with... More

It's about a 1/2 hour drive from Moab, but it's a beautiful little valley with spectacular rock formations. Make sure to visit the little town library.

I have never been to Castle Valley, wanted to go for years. It had snowed and I was surprised the road up the Colorado River hadn't been plowed better. We drove into Castle Valley. I was expecting a more scenic area, but perhaps if it wasn't snowy it would have been neater. We will have to come back and do... More

Moab has some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen and I have traveled all over. I would recommend to anyone from couples for a romantic getaway to families to visit.

One of John Ford's favorite movie locations. Just driving in you expect to see John Wayne come riding over the hill with the Yankee Calvary. Well worth the 20 mile side trip to see this.
