Meat Week Part II: Grilling the Grillables
On our way out of Moab we made a trip through Canyonlands. Of course, being the FIS, we had to take the sidedoor in through the park (this was also necessitated by getting booted from Arches the previous night for being in the park “suspiciously late”.) This also necessitated a long trip alongside the Colorado River in the bottom of the “canyonlands” first…
…and then a clever way from the bottom of the “canyonlands” (seriously, who came up with this name? A caveman could have come up with a better name) to the top of the “canyonlands.” (woah now!! steep road!)
The Chicken Taco (with a little help from John Mellencamp blasting through its speakers) was up for the challenge though.
Unfortunately, when we got to the top of the road, and found ourselves at the end of the paved tourist road at “Grand Vista Point” or whatever the extremely creative namers of “Canyonlands” decided it should be called, we also came to the end of the desert portion of Meat Week. We had run out of Sun Chips, and we were therefore forced to say “goodbye” to Southern Utah. We each took a moment for solemn reflection on our own unique spiritual Meat Week in the desert.
Porter actually took two moments of reflection by doing an interpretive dance of the Canyonlands (mostly to demonstrate the fact that literally ANYTHING is more creative than the names this park came up with).
