Minnesota to Utah

Main Destination:  Moab, UT

Starting Point:  Minnesota

Notable Attractions:  Canyonlands NP, Arches NP, Mount Rushmore, Badlands

This is a long trip for 1 week, but well worth it if you take a look at all the ground that is covered and the notable places to visit.  We hauled our travel trailer for this trip and even pulled it over Loveland Pass in the Rocky Mountains on our way out.  You could mix this up by leaving Moab a day earlier and having an extra day at Mount Rushmore.  We visited Mount Rushmore on our way out of town Sunday morning, plus drove through the Badlands.  This made the pull home a bit of a long day.  The other thing I would have done different was to stay an extra night at Dead Horse Point State Park and then finished off the last couple nights at one of the private campgrounds in the town of Moab.
