Once leaving Santa Fe, we headed north west towards Colorado then crossed into Utah. We were close to the only area in the United States where four states meet - Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. The terrain was so amazing throughout the whole drive. It constantly was changing. A beautiful drive that we would never have experienced had we not made the left hand turn to go to Huntsville, AL and Santa Fe, NM.
We arrived in Moab, UT wonderful surprise of a small town that as it turns out several movies have been filmed near. One of the films was City Slickers. It is near the Canyonlands National Park as well as the Arches National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. I encourage you to check out the website for this area - it is stunningly beautiful. http://www.discovermoab.com/
Today we are leaving for north of Salt Lake City on our way to Vancouver. We will update you tomorrow with our new location. The photo were mostly all taken while the vehicle was in motion, but I hope you get some idea of the vast beauty of the drive
A quick update on Steve's Dad. He appears to be on the mend from the reports we are getting from home. He does not recall much of the past 10 days and the events from Blanid's funeral to the hospital stay Montague or Charlottetown, PEI or being transferred to Halifax by ambulance including the first couple of days in Halifax. He is now more lucid from what we understand and is beginning to show signs of wanting to work at getting better. He was up yesterday with the assistance of a walker, so hopefully the medications will begin to take effect and he will be able to gain strength. Steve's Mom is very tired as we can all imagine but thankfully has had Barb and Maureen there with her to help her manage. Our love goes out to them all. Thank you to Mike and Barb for sending updates.
Take care everyone and know that although we are so sad about Cocoa we know that we have to move forward and that hopefully she is in a good home.
