Mesa Verde

From Utah I headed to Durango, Colorado, and I made a stop at Mesa Verde National Park.  I got there as most of the cliff dwellings closed for the night, but I still got a good overview of the park.

Cool cliffs and arches between Moab and Mesa Verde

Headed East

By mid-May, it was time for me to begin my journey east toward Colorado, but I of course snuck in one last afternoon of fishing on my way out of Utah.

Goodbyes are never fun

Giant trout at Cabella's south of Salt Lake City

I spent much too long watching these monsters cruise around

My last afternoon on the Provo River started out dreary...

...but it cleared up before I had to leave.
