Mexican Hat, UT
Day 2 is quickly coming to an end, even though there's still quite a distance to go, to reach Moab, Utah. I used the last light of day to take this picture of the rock formation that gave Mexican Hat, Utah, its name. A turnoff allows you to get close to the base of the rock.
After this, the light was gone. I headed to Moab in the dark, passing by unknown beauty along the way. One thing I was able to see, one sign after another, warning me of the dangers of deer, darting into the road. With each sign, I wondered why I didn't buy the extra insurance on my rental car. But, I didn't hit one, or even see one... and finally finished the 120 or so mile journey to Moab.
Moab, UT makes a great base for exploring both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. It can be expensive on weekends, and in the height of tourist season. (I recommend the basic, but clean and friendly Days Inn on the north side of town.)
I'll once again recommend KTNN, AM 660, especially if you end up driving after dark. Its powerful signal can be heard throughout the southwest at night. And, it's the only reliable station you'll find in this area.
