I swear we were met with blank stares from every single person who asked about our vacation plans – to the point that it became almost comical after a while – but I have ZERO regrets (nor did I expect any).

This place is beautiful.

There's no way to really capture what I'm seeing. šŸ˜®šŸ—»šŸŒ²

We wound up using yelp to find breakfast in SLC before heading out of town Sunday morning.

Heading out of town, but first - breakfast!

I REALLY wanted all the biscuits – or at least a waffle – but I stuck with yogurt and granola (which was fantastic, but was … plain yogurt and granola).

I think I’ve reached a point I never thought I’d reach in this lifetime. One where I can enter a restaurant and TRY to eat something decent (most of the time) vs. gravitating to the junkiest option possible. I just don’t like feeling sluggish and crappy and I think that’s starting to outweigh everything else. Even on vacation. Weird.

Anyway, we ate and then headed to Moab with a short stop in Provo.

The drive was gorgeous.

We rented a small cabin in the La Sal Mountains – SE of Moab – 25ish or 40ish miles away depending on the route taken down the mountain.

It’s a one room cabin that’s perfect for us. Super adorable.

This was a really great choice.

So anyway, we spent the afternoon driving the La Sal Mountain Loop Road (a super scenic drive around the mountain). Ate lunch in Moab and then grocery shopped.

Came back to the cabin, Jon cooked dinner and then we spent some time in the hot tub once the sun went down.

Yesterday morning, Jon cooked a pretty decadent breakfast.

After that, we headed out to explore the trails around our cabin.

A cat lives at the cabin, so she accompanied us the entire way.

We also drove on some of the roads around the cabin and checked out some other trails.

We spent the late afternoon taking naps and reading and otherwise just hung out together.

Beautiful day!

Today, we’re headed to Arches National Park. Just waiting for the sun to come up. Awake at 445 again this morning.

Our view of the red rock canyons from up here is gorgeous. No way to capture it with my phone camera (which is all I’m using these days) – so I’m super excited to head down there and hang out.
