After Santa Fe we took a detour up north to Moab. It was my first time in the area, and I was definitely impressed! We camped for a few of nights in Big Bend national park right next to the Colorado River, and had an amazing 7 mile run through Arches National Park.
While we were on the road my boyfriend received some edits on a journal article he has been working on. So we decided to return to LA for a few weeks so he can run some models and work on those edits. After that, we will be back on the road again. We have decided we want to go down to Baja Mexico – so we will also use our time in LA to prepare for that trip – purchasing additional vehicle and travel insurance, picking the safest route, and making reservations at some hotels.
