Default Heading out to your fair state again next week

Haven't been around here much lately as DH has been settled out there in his man cave since August and I haven't been there since August. Coming out next week though and taking a long weekend trip down to Moab to see some of the sights around there. Any tips or advice for my trip?

So is your time going to be spent primariy in Salt Lake City or primarily down in the Moab area? Have to been to the Moab area before? Here are my suggestions for how to spend your time at Arches. (1) Don't miss a hike into the Fiery Furnace. You must go with a ranger and you need to sign up as soon as you arrive in the park. It's an incredible hike that you will never forget. (2) Delicate Arch is probably the most well-known arch in the park and definitely worth the hike. (3) You can arrange through one of several companies down in Moab to take a Hummer ride up over Hell's Revenge. It's an experience I would recommend to anybody. (4) If you have time, take a half-day rafting trip on Westwater. You will be talking about it for weeks.

New arrangements are that you sign up online ahead of time for Fiery Furnace tickets. Due to high demand they no longer accept sign ups at the park. Hopefully this link works Tour Park Detail - FIERY FURNACE TOUR - ARCHES, Utah - Recreation.gov

I see there are still 7 spots open for April 30th if you will still be there.

Wow! That's worth knowing! I suppose they'd honor last-minute requests to join the hike if they were ready to start out and had any open spots, but I wouldn't want to take that chance.

Yes, I believe they would accept you last minute. However I believe it was on the park website they said they are usually sold out and cancellations are rare. You can always check on the reservation site a few days ahead if you have a last minute trip. I have also seen them add tours, if they are sold out early enough another tour opens up,,,,I have yet to figure out how regularly this happens or what criteria there are.
