Birthday + Friends + Moab
 

Hey, everyone! It has been a long while since I've done any blogging. I'm starting up this new blog for a fresh start. So to get this thing started, I just had my 25th birthday and decided to make a last minute trip to Moab with some good friends of mine. We all crammed into one car after work on a Thursday and made the 6-hour drive to Moab. The weekend couldn't have gone any better. We hit Canyonlands the first day and Arches the next day. Hiking around standing on cliffs we probably shouldn't have been on, cooking delicious burritos, and drinking good beer.  I had never been to Canyonlands before, let's just say I was shocked! One of the cliffs we hiked out to, had the most stunning view with an even more stunning silence. One of us spoke up over our laughing while sitting on the edge and said, "Shh! Let's just listen for a few minutes."  The silence that happened after that was extraordinary. There was a moment that a crow flew overhead and you could hear the "woosh, woosh" of his wings flapping in the air.  Those are the kind of moments that I live for. So needless to say, I had an amazing 25th birthday, so are a few of the moments from the trip. I hope you enjoy!

 
Arches National Park
 

This was my first time to Moab.  My good friend, Shane Farnsworth joined me for the first half of my trip. I picked him up in Denver and we stared heading west. Almost as soon as we crossed the Colorado Utah border the landscape changed to a vast, open, mars like surface. The next few days spent at Arches National Park were jammed packed with unforgettable moments.
