We arrived in Moab, with poor visibility, snowing and icy. We had a pre-booked tour with Tag-A Long for the next day and were concerned about it. The minute we arrived in the office our guide Bill made our spirits rise with his enthusiasm. We set off back country up a steep snow covered track overlooking The Arches National Park, that had obviously not been used for days. As we climbed we could not believe that we were seeing views normally only filmed by professionals such as National Geographic. Monumental rock faces capped by snow were rising out of the mist with colours made brilliant by the sun. Bill kept up the suspense, first by wondering whether we would make the climb, then whether the top would be shrouded in cloud, but somehow found a route that took us from one amazing view to an even better one. All the time we were hearing about the geology, history and other interesting stories. We had been travelling for almost an hour before we saw another car. If you want superb visual clarity, sun, snow and no crowds, January is the time to see the Moab area.
