Moab—there’s a lot of magic in that name. It conjures up bare-bones landscapes of stunning beauty, deep canyons excavated by the Colorado River, distant vistas of peak and plain, long cliff bands of multicolored sandstone, and soaring towers and arches that scrape against the blue sky. The Moab area, with its vast uninhabited tracts of sandstone canyons, cliffs, and mesas, is an outdoor paradise for hikers.
