This is what a 10 minute drive out of town will get you for a view!

Not my 40 but a guy named Justin from Gunnison was camped just up hill above us..his buddy or Dad is a neighbor of Uncle Ben's..

might be the inspiration for Tow-Mator....This is a VW junkyard in Moab..The owner' son took it over a few years ago and is kind of cleaning it up..It is like a resting ground for many old VWs, many vans, bugs, Karmen Gia's..Always looked at it from the road, first time I actually got to walk the grounds..kind of sacred back there..

The road out on Sunday..."Why are we leaving???...Man if I had my FJ, I would be headed home via the Kokopelli, calling in sick on Monday"...did you say something?.."me? Nope..great trip honey..."

Yes indeed, nice pictures. I dig the warm light, especially on that last one. I wouldn't do well with a city of nearby campers like that, but you're right, the view from your camp is really nice.
