A Mundane Memorial Weekend

22 05 2015

As has become a tradition, we’re once again in Moab, UT for our “kickoff to summer” trip, this time over Memorial Day weekend.  This is our 4th trip to the Moab area:

  1. 2011, On to Moab, UT
  2. 2013, Devil’s Garden Campground, Arches National Park
  3. 2014, Dead Horse Point State Park

As in 2011, we’re once again parked at Horsethief Campground, a first-come, first-serve BLM area with 56 sites about 25 miles northwest of Moab.  This campground wasn’t our first choice – instead we were headed to Ken’s Lake, a smaller campground of 31 sites on a small lake 10 miles south of Moab.  But, even arriving early on Thursday we find all sites here full.  And even at Horsethief, there were only a handful of sites available – we were lucky to find two across from each other.

Possibly it’s the disappointment that we were unable to get into Ken’s Lake, or maybe it’s the cooler weather with highs in the low 70’s, or the nearly constant threat of thunderstorms – but in all this has been a boring stay in Utah.  We’re ready to find someplace new for early-season camping.
