Moab and Southeastern Utah Travel Guide
Plan Your Moab and Southeastern Utah Vacation
Southeastern Utah is full of converts, and not so much in a religious sense. These are people formerly of suburbs or cities who cut through this country once on a road trip or came here long ago for a family vacation. They spent a few days surrounded by the vast, unpeopled desert and the clean, welcoming rivers, and the land became a part of them. Years or decades later, they have rejected the urban lifestyle and now work remotely by Internet; own restaurants, breweries, bike shops, or galleries; or do seasonal work—whatever they must to stay here. As much as the red rock, big sky, and nearby mountains, the rich, pioneering energy of these residents is what makes this part of Utah what it is. For them, this is a place to be reborn.
