The road to Moab UT

Yes, the rain is mixing with snow!

Yikes - look at the temp!

Now slush is beginning to accumulate on the road...

...and the temperature keeps dropping

Not good!

Worse yet. NOT FUN!


(Some dash-cam screen shots follow)

And I thought I might have a problem...

About 40 miles south of Moab, the rain/snow dissipated and the temp crept above freezing.

Entering Moab

Parked at the motel, snow remained on the bra.

Definitely ready for a beer!

Moab Brewery was a winner!

This is the Black Raven Stout
