After a successful day at Arches National Park, my husband and I decided to check the Fisher Towers the following day. We drove the scenic Highway 128 after turning right from highway 191 from Moab City. The 44 mile long State Route 128, which we only drove 25, has been designated the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway. The tall cliffs hid the morning sunshine as we started the drive but the famous Colorado River on our left made the drive astonishing.

Unfortunately, the last part to the trail head is unpaved and although our car have previously managed, we didn’t want to take the risk. At least, we have seen the Fisher Towers from a distance. Also, I thought I heard Canyonlands National Park already calling my name :)

Finally, the view of the Fishers in the distance as seen from Utah State Route 128, also famous as the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway, in Moab, Utab, USA.
