You saw Thelma and Louise drive full-speed off the cliff in Moab’s Canyonlands, but I recommend that you hit the brakes and stay awhile. Most people who live in Moab were originally visitors who fell in love with the spot and planted roots here in the slick rock; the adoration of the town by its residents comes through in almost every interaction you’ll have. They are eager to share the love, especially with adventurous ladies traveling alone. You’re as likely to have a fierce female guide, as a manly man on the trails. This is a significant boon for the adventurous sister who needs inspiration, or a little added security, to really let loose. Moab’s terrain is in a constant state of undress, with only a few shrubs and skimpy trees adorning the vast, flesh-colored shoulders and bare thighs of exposed rock. Bends and crevices seem more like soft skin than petrified sand, giving the area a feeling that is sensual and spiritual all at once. Each rock formation seems to have a face, embedded within its outcroppings and indents. In Moab, nature looks back at you.
