Excellent pic! Nice on the wide angle.
Moab is such the excellent place. Everywhere you look, it's hard to believe the stunning landscape before you is real.
We have been to Moab the last three years in a row. Spring and Summer are the best (for us, anyway) due to crowds and particularly the deadly heat. Our recommendos : lodging- Redstone Inn, really nice rooms, hot tub, bike wash, laundry, and very reasonable rates; food- lots of good places, but we are extremely fond of the Eclectic Cafe, healthy food (killer b'fast), espresso done right, nice folks particularly the owner who is a total sweetheart, and they mark your order at your table with an ersatz vegetable or piece of fruit (just like Otto's did in Olympia); also for b'fast or espresso our other fave is Mondo Cafe ("coffee- still legal in Utah"). There is one Thai restaurant in Moab and it sucks (at least it will for those like us Puget Sound folks who have loads of Thai to choose from!).
Moab is always a high(er) point in our yearly road trip (wheeee, entire month of October to travel, ride, hike!). We go riding in Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. For Utah, besides Moab we also like the St. George area for great riding. St. George also has one Thai restaurant, it sucks as well.
