Our Christmas plans went way up in the air when our son told us his job at Keystone ski resort had him working almost every day of the holidays including both Christmas and new yearís. When we learned our daughter had a few days free around Christmas we decided to go anyway and pick her up in Utah on the way. She had just been to Canyonlands and Arches down by Moab and insisted we make a side trip there. Due to limited time we just went to Dead Horse Point and did some hiking around the park headquarters followed by lunch in Moab. It was a good suggestion.

Thin snow cover all over the Rockies made for less than stellar skiing. We did manage a day each at Keystone and Beaver Creek. The tripís highlight was family dinner at an Italian restaurant in Dillon Christmas eve. Then we got up  early Christmas morning for the long drive home.

I love Dead Horse Point!  We found that park to make an excellent base camp to visit both Arches and Canyonlands from.  Glad you had nice weather and an enjoyable time!
