We have cruised on into Moab where they claim to be the adventure capital of the world. You can certainly get your adreniline pumping here, Yesterday we spent half of the day hiking around the Arches National Park. Amazing rock formations everywhere you looked. It was awesome but would have loved more time to do more of the hikes and get a better look at everything.

Today was our adrenaline day. We started out in Negro Bill Canyon with a small hike to where we abseilled down a 30 metre cliff face. Another small hike and another abseil down about 40 metres before a 3 mile hike out of the canyon. Wow it was exciting, certainly got the heart rate up. After this was a sunset Hummer tour overlooking Moab. This was alot of fun and gave us good views as well as the thrills. It was yet again awesome.At some stages the tyres actually left the ground, we were balanced on 3 wheels.

We are currently lying in bed - a tent, pitched on gravel with 1 cm thick mattresses, these are as useful as weetbix in a swimming pool. Anyhow we are going to try and get some sleep before more hiking tomorrow.

Ahem... you know you love it! In the words of our bona fide cowboy friend. Anyways, i found you on here yey :-) I hope you guys are having a ball, Blighty is looking a little grey and dull (yes even more than usual) in comparison to the delectable planes of Johnny Utah. Im looking forward to seeing the rest of your photos, nobody can compare to the kiwi paparazzi.

Oh yes, before I forget... Cake or death!! xx
