Yikes! The fiery furnace tour is getting sold out and I want to finalize our plans for Moab. Here's what I've got so far:
Oct 12 - drive from Torrey to Moab, stopping in Little Wild Horse Canyon (hiking the short version) and Goblin Valley SP.
Oct 13 Moab
Oct 14 Moab
Oct 15 Moab
Oct 16 drive to Monument Valley via Moki Dugway (eek!) and possibly Natural Bridges NM
Here's what we would love to do:
Arches - Park Ave., Delicate Arch, Devil's Garden - probably shortened version to Landscape Arch), Fiery Furnace hike (10a.m. and 2p.m., not available at all on Oct. 13)
Canyonlands Ballooning (early a.m. till about 10:30 or 11)
Dead Horse SP
Canyonlands Islands in the Sky (overlooks)
Moab Adventure Center's afternoon raft that starts in the Fisher Towers area around 11:30am
Is this too much for three full days?
I'd say we could do the Fiery Furnace and rafting on one day, but I don't think it will work since the tour is at 10AM or 2PM,and the rafting is at 11:30. I guess we could do the rafting in the a.m. and the 2p.m. Fiery Furnace tour, but I think it might be cold on the river for the a.m. raft. From what I read, doing the Fiery Furnace and the Devil's Garden and the rest of the stuff in Arches would not be possible in one day, but I'm open to that if it can work.
I hear it's really crowded at the Delicate Arch at sunset. Thoughts?
At some point, we want to hit the little museum in Moab. Oh, and I would love to see a Dinosaur track. :-)
We're staying at the Kokopelli Inn in Moab.
Thanks, as always, for any help!
