Jet boating the Colorado River

Moab, Utah

October 24, 2013

If you are looking for adventure away from the crowds in Moab, a jet boat trip on the Colorado River is your ticket.  The views along the river change as the red rock formations and 2.200 ft cliff walls pass by.

There were hints of subtle fall colors along the river edge.
