Drive along scenic byways is a must while in Moab.
Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway - U 128: We were staying on U-128, Mile 14. This spectacular route along the Colorado River gorge begins at the Colorado River Bridge on north of Moab. For the first 13 miles it parallels the Colorado River within narrow section of the gorge, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding red sandstone cliffs. We passed through this byway numerous times for 5 days, and, every time, we were amazed. After 24.7 miles, it passes one of the grandest views in the west, the red rock spires of the Fisher Towers set against the often snow covered peaks of the La Sal Mountains.
