US 191, South of Moab, UT
As day 4 began, I arose early and headed back down US 191, the same road I had traveled two days ago, in the dark. And just as I suspected, there was quite a bit to see, that I missed.
I stopped for just a moment to watch the sun rising behind Wilson Arch. Finally, an arch that didn't require a mile long hike: Wilson Arch is right at the edge of the highway.
Watch for Hole 'N The Rock as you leave Moab. The decades- old tourist attraction is an entire house, carved out of a sandstone mountain-side. You can take a tour or just visit the gift shop. Alas, I started out too early, and it hadn't opened yet.
In the rear view mirror: a look back at the LaSal Mountains.
From here, our trip continues back down US 191, past Monticello and Blanding, to the intersection of UT 95: an incredible road that will take us northwest across the state.
Instead of backtracking down 191, you could head north to I-70, then west to UT 24. This route would save you several hours of driving, but you'd miss out on some incredible scenery.
