Matt Keezer teaches us how to explore while on Vacation in Moab
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, November 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Moab, located in eastern Utah, serves as a gateway to Arches National Park. The Arches park is famous for it’s massive red rock formations. Canyonlands National Park, located southwest of Moab, features mesas and buttes carved by the Green and Colorado rivers and Native American rock art. Both of these are Jeep treks on the list at COOLTOYS® TV but Matt Keezer shows us how to visit without a Jeep.
Moab visitors can also immerse themselves in prehistoric times by searching for dinosaur tracks at
locations such as Bull Canyon Overlook and Copper Ridge. Moab may be a hiker’s paradise and a nature lover’s playground, but plenty of other activities are readily available. So, let us examine what Moab has to offer.
Experience a Sunset Evening Hummer Safari
Everything in Moab turns a deeper shade of red, pink, or orange as the sun sets in the west. These spectacular colors are best viewed from the trails. While I prefer my Jeep, Matt suggests the Sunset Hummer Safari. Watching a sunset in Moab is experiencing a kaleidoscope of colors. As the sun bathes the unique terrain and transform the place into something extraordinary.
Matt Keezer recommends: “Sitting comfortably in a rock-steady Hummer and being driven by expert guides through some of the most unique terrain is truly unique, but don’t miss The Hells Revenge Trail – the world’s most famous 4×4 trail.”
Discover the Sand Flats Recreation Area
Moab’s backyard playground, the Sand Flats Recreation Area, features irresistible slickrock hill ideal for mountain biking, dirt biking, and off-roading adventures of all kinds. This is also an excellent camping area, with numerous campgrounds nestled among the rolling rocks.
“Camping under the stars and seeing every star for a change is something that everyone will enjoy.” says Keezer.
Raft, Kayak, or Canoe on the Colorado River
The mighty Colorado River flows peacefully through Moab’s northern end, providing a welcome respite from the hot and dry desert surroundings. Surrounded by stunning red rock canyons and sheer cliff walls that line the banks, this section of the river is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, and stand up paddle boarding.
Matt Keezer recommends: “If you’re looking for a little more adventure, river rafting trips and jet boat excursions are ideal. Choose from day trips, sunset rides, or night show tours; either way, nobody will walk away disappointed.” One problem is the sheer number of choices when you vacation in Moab.
Drive to the Overlook at Dead Horse Point
Taking in the expansive views are a big part of the Moab experience. Many overlooks are easily accessible to view during the morning or evening light. This according to Keezer is, without a doubt, one of the best things to do in Moab, Utah. Even in the flat glare of midday, this State Park inspires visitors. They can sit and watch the Colorado River’s goosenecks roll peacefully hundreds of feet below. Further down the river they can look down as it approaches the Canyonlands National Park’s deep labyrinth of gorges.
Another Keezer favorite is the Dead Horse Point area for mountain biking. He says it is a fun and healthy activity that brings you to multiple jaw-dropping scenic overlooks. He highly recommends a guided bike tour of the rim. This way you are to make the most of the trek before heading back to the small town of Moab.
Traveling like a vacation in Moab should to be the most unforgettable experiences in life. With that in mind, Matt Keezer urges all those planning to visit Moab, Utah to plan ahead. During the COVID-19 pandemic it is important to stay safe by following the protocols. He also reminds everyone to keep an eye on local news and government announcements. Travel and stay regulations are subject to change at any time. Social distancing wasn’t likely a problem during his trek.
