Less than 3 hours away, Moab, Utah is one of the best day-trips in the Telluride region. You can easily wake up in Telluride, drive West, hike some unbelievable "bucketlist" trails and be back in your comfy Colorado bed later that evening.
We ventured over to our neighboring town of Moab this weekend and hiked around the famous Dead Horse Point State Park
. We've hiked Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park... but never Dead Horse Point. It was one of the prettiest sites we'd ever seen! Unobstructed views for miles and miles. Next time you visit us here in Telluride, don't forget that you can make Telluride your "homebase" and travel to these amazing spots any given afternoon.
Here's the beautiful mesa view into Canyonlands from Dead Horse Point:
