Since I'm avoiding do actual work right now.... This is a road trip that I did over the winter holiday break.
Back in November of 2019 my Fiesta 1.0T got in a fight with a deer and lost. Several weeks later (Nov 29th) I was finally able to pick up my 13 Golf TDI with 104k down in Nashville. I quickly got to work getting the windows tinted, installing wireless AA/CarPlay, and doing basic maintenance.
Since I had 17 days off work with no plans, I figured I might as well throw the dog in the car and drive to see a friend out in California. I left Columbus on December 20th in a car that was still very new to me. 17 hours and 21 minutes, 1282 miles later I arrived at my hotel in Denver. Total time not moving was 19 minutes.
After tucking doggo in for a nights rest
It was time to head for Canyonlands National Park on day 2.
First stop was Mesa Arch and the other trailheads, as well as climbing to the top of Actec Butte.
But what I really wanted to do was take the Golf down Potash road while I still had light. So I did. I only beached the car twice.
On the way out of Moab the next day I stopped in Arches National Park.
Followed by my next stop at Little Wild Horse Canyon and a ~12 mile hike.
