How much money do I need for a 16-day US roadtrip?

Now that I’ve informed you all over the past few months about everything we’ve done on our US roadtrip, it’s probably also time to discuss the price tag that came along with this holiday.

Why hiking is the way to go at Arches National Park

In the region of Moab, there are many points of interest, but the national park we were most looking forward to, was definitely Arches National Park.  Arches National Park has the largest concentration of natural sandstone arches in the world which of course immediately piqued our interest.
