"Overland Expodition"

For those of you attending or thinking about going to the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, AZ or just looking for an adventure, I'm planning on leading a small group on a road trip to the expo and back with camping and sightseeing along the way!

The plan is to meet in Denver Thursday at 7am and head to Moab for lunch. Then we head South towards Bluff, UT to camp for the night in The Valley of the Gods. We'll pass through Monument Valley towards Page, AZ to stop in the Lower Antelope Canyon (I have a reservation with Ken's tour myself) From Page we'll make a quick stop to witness Horseshoe Bend in the Grand Canyon on our way to Flagstaff and plan to get to expo in early evening to establish camp and stay Saturday and Sunday.

From the expo we're bound for Moab, we'll stop to visit the Grand Canyon Village (South Rim) to stretch our legs. With the exception of the Lower Antelope Canyon, this is a dog friendly trip so we plan on bringing our dogs. We'll spend Monday night 5/21 and most of the day Tuesday 5/22 to hit up the easy to moderate trails in Moab to have some fun! This trip will consist mostly of free dispersed campgrounds throughout, and I already have campgrounds planned along the way and once we get to Moab.

I highly suggest purchasing tickets for the expo ASAP if you haven't already.
