We paused for gas in Monticello before making our next push into Moab. In Moab we stopped at the City Market to get food for our dinner at Dead Horse Point. We waited in the parking lot for Dave to arrive, he had made good time after his late start.
We left Moab and rode about 25 miles to the Dead Horse Point Camp Grounds.
There were now eight of us and we all set up in one area, it was a little crowded, but it worked out. We watch the sun set, told stories, appreciated a few drinks and ate dinner.
There was a full moon and it’s light made looking at the stars difficult. It was an enjoyable evening with the camaraderie a day on the highway brings. I felt very fortunate to have spent the day doing something I love with a group of guys that feel the same way.
