I thought it was a chicken. He's kind of a small dog, you know :)

The family decided mid summer that we wouldn't be going back to NE for Thanksgiving. Mel hadn't been to MOAB and always has pics to look at and stories to hear. We packed up and drove through the night last Wed. 12 drive time. Checked into the dog friendly hotel Thanksgiving morning. The girls and I hiked about three quarters of the way up portal and then had to head back to town for some grub. We didn't think we would have any chance of finding a turkey dinner. That Mcstiffs place had the spread Turkey,stuffing,Sweet Potato, and Pumpking Pie!

Day Two Arches National Park: We Hiked to the Delicate arch overlook the Lanscape acrh, Skyway arch, and two others that were spectacular but I can't remember the names right now.

Day Three:

We got up early and drove to Copper Cayon Mine. We were on the Trail at 8am and we had it all to ourselves. The hike takes you through an abandoned mine up to the edge of the ridge overlooking copper cayon. Hiked along the Ridge and scrambled down over some boulders and then away from the ridge to a giant open area of Sandstone. This is where the majority of dino prints were located. The guide book that I had said there are 2000 documented tracks at this site. We found a large concetration of prints and unpacked our lunch and sat there in the sun surround by acient dinosaur tracks for about 2 hours. It was sweet! I felt like a five year old I was as excited as my daughter to see the tracks! I will have to look up the names of the dinos one smaller carnivore and one midsized herbavore.

Hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving!
