A writer for The Orange County Register has some ideas about exploring Moab.

In a post shared on The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s blog, Orange County Register writer David Whiting explained what he experienced when he recently visited Moab.

He said Utah, unlike his home in California, offers a wealth of breathtaking views.

“Here’s the secret: In Utah, beauty and wonder are nothing unusual. Even the drive out is amazing,” he said. “In California — and I love the Golden State — most of us don’t stop at ‘vista ahead’ signs. In Utah, you stop.”

Whiting, who visited Moab for Jeep Week, also offered tips about how to explore the southern area of the state.

He said it’s important to visit Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Klondike Bluff.

Bringing snacks, drinks and water are also necessary steps, he said.

“For me, the coolest national park near Moab is Arches. For my wife, it is Canyonlands. With hiking, photography and rock climbing in both parks, there is plenty to check out,” he wrote.
