Camping in the San Rafael Swell with Paul and Lauren

Mike had been talking about taking about taking me to this magical place in Utah, and we finally went. Our friends Paul and Lauren and Lauren's dog Bluebell came with us.

The desert was covered with bright orange flowers.  Some were Indian Paintbrush, some were Cowboy's Delight.  Gorgeous.

If you haven't been to the San Rafael Swell, GO!  It rocks Moab.
