Ely, NV to Moab, UT

Day 32 - July 1, 2010
Mileage Today: 440
Total Trip Mileage: 9,410

We depart from Ely, NV by about 8am and continue down Hwy 50 toward Utah.

Still plenty of desolation to go around…

Desert in front, desert behind.

But the scenery is starting to change a bit as we head into Utah.

Lush greenness in the middle of the desert; the miracle of irrigation.

We stopped for lunch at a small burger stand. Since we are in Utah, they include a tub of fry sauce for dipping your French fries in. Apparently fry sauce is a mixture of ketchup, mayonnaise and pickle juice (?)

Hwy 50 eventually junctions with I-70, which carries us through this scenery:

We make it to Moab, UT and it is super hot. We find a place to set up camp, ditch our gear, and head to Arches National Park.

Then back to camp for the night.
