Throwback Thursday: Moab

by Andi Sykes 2

Everyone’s heard of Moab – but is it really that good? Dave makes the pilgrimage to Utah to find out.

Words by Dave, pictures Adrian Marcoux and Marcus Riga.

“This is the most beautiful place on earth. There are many such places. Every man, every woman, carries in heart and mind the image of the ideal place, the right place, the one true home, known or unknown, actual or visionary… For myself, I’ll take Moab, Utah. I don’t mean the town itself, of course, but the country which surrounds it – the canyonlands. The slickrock desert. The red dust and the burnt cliffs and the lonely sky – all that which lies beyond the end of the roads.”
Edward Abbey, ‘Desert Solitaire’, 1968.

  1. LOVED EVERY MIN WHEN I WENT 11 YEARS BACK.
    NEARLY $2 TO THE POUND TOO
    Them are memories ………….

  2. I was lucky to be there for outerbike two years ago. Also managed to tick off the full enchilada. It truly is an epic trail which I think about returning to daily. Loved the vibe of the town and ate most nights in the Moab brewery. Can’t wait to return again
