What a strange day today! We were all tired, and way too hot; the temperature was nearly 100 degrees. We didn't get out until late, when the sun was at it's hottest, and Ioan had a major teenage mood.....things could only get better!

We started off by visiting the shops in Moab, then had smoothies and ice cream in The Peace Tree Juice Bar. We then drove to Dead Horse State Park, where Thelma & Louise took their final car journey! The scenery was spectacular, as we looked down on the Colorado. You can see for miles, but it's strange scenery, like nothing on earth!

We drove onto Canyonlands, a National Park we had failed to visit when we came 2 years ago. We drove onto Island In the Sky, and stopped off at the viewpoints. It was sooo hot! We took a half mile trail to see one viewpoint, but it was all uphill, and I was so over heated i thought I was going to throw up when I got there! We stopped for a picnic, and drove onto the Green River Overlook, which was my favourite, then onto Grand View. Lyn took the little trail dowm to Mesa Arch.

Ioan finally admitted he'd been in a bad mood because he hadn't been sleeping; it is hard work all of us sleeping in one room, and it being so hot.

We went for a pizza, and I drove back to the hotel, so Lyn could have a pitcher of beer. Not the best of days, but at least we'd got to Canyonlands eventually!
