{moab in fotos : day one}

24 Sep

i had the privilege of taking a little vacation to moab last week. i was desperate for a getaway. when i found out moab was only 3 hours from where i lived, i was super excited to visit.  of course, after my accident in december last year, i haven’t been able to do much traveling or road-tripping like i like to do.  thankfully, i met someone recently who has a similar love for the great outdoors and for adventures on wheels, and we were able to take enjoy a little getaway together…

the first stop was actually near the colorado/utah border, but i’m saving those pics for another time.  i just wanna get right to sharing the images from moab.


drive-by {foto} shooting 😉


i so wish i would’ve had a sticker to slap on there…



“castle valley”


the landscape in moab looks so awesome in black and white… but the colours are also so bright and vivid. we arrived to our first camp-spot just before sunset.  the light from the evening sun casts the most glorious glow all over the rocks.  we had a mix of clouds during the time the sun was going down, but i can only imagine how that place lights up with full sun…

i can’t decide if i prefer the B&W images or the colour.  what do you think?

i climbed those huge boulders just before snapping this selfie…


i was scared shitless a little nervous about climbing the rock, but I got over it eventually…


hey check out my shadow – and don’t step on the crypto


i’m fascinated by the tiny plant growth and the mudslide carvings…


i ❤ this tree… and i’m pretty sure it was talking to me in some way…

and so the sun set on day one… and i had instantly fallen in love with moab.  and so did my camera.

    What a lovely adventure! I think I prefer the color photos…but it was a hard decision as the b&w photos are quite dramatic!

      thanks, lady! i think i prefer the black and white… but both give off such a different “feel” it’s hard to choose one 😉
