Moab could be considered the "city unique" of Utah. It's infested three-quarters of the year with gear heads and rock crawlers. Tourists show up with every kind of wheeled conveyance imaginable, from mountain bikes to $100,000 cliff climbing jeeps. The slickrock country around Moab is perfect for four-wheeling and off-roading. I've been to Moab many times, and I'm sorry to say that few of my photos capture this very important part of the Moab economy. Instead, I've included a series of random photos which may or may not convey the essence of Moab. I'll try to do better in the future.
I went to see the show at the Bar-M Chuckwagon in 2009. You got a chuckwagon meal, a shootout, and cowboy songs by the Bar-M Wranglers all for a very reasonable price. The Bar M Chuckwagon is now only available for private parties, and I understand that soon it will be known as the Handlebar Ranch. It's nice I got some photos from the good old days.
Lin Ottinger's Rock Shop
Lin Ottinger started the Rock Shop in 1960 and it's still going strong. I've always been facinated by fossils and minerals (what kid isn't), and I try to stop by the Rock Shop every time I'm in Moab.
The Sunset Grill occupies the former residence of Charlie Steen, the "Uranium King" of Moab. The restaurant is so named because it sits high on a ridge and faces west over the valley with a terrific view of the sunset. I wanted to include more info on the house itself, but could not find any details.
