The next day, Mother's Day, was spent on the road to Moab from Mesquite. The drive on I-70 is very scenic, for an interstate, so it made for a pleasant second half of our drive. We got into Moab around 5:00 and after cleaning up, we went into town and did a little shopping and then had an excellent Mexican dinner at Miguel's Baja Grill. This morning (Monday) we headed out to Canyonlands National Park to pick up our wilderness permits and to show Michael and Mikie around the Park at bit. We had lunch at a little sandwich "cart" in Dead Horse State Park at the visitor's center. It was very good and we had a pleasant lunch on the deck overlooking the canyon below.

Update: In fairness to Mikie, she actually went back to the casino early the next morning and won $175 on the same WOF machine that I won my $1000 on, so she did do better than the 20 cents shown in the picture.
Update #2: Tonight we had a great dinner at the Sunset Grill which is situated on a hill above Moab with a great view of the valley below. The restaurant is housed in the former home of Charlie Steen, the uranium king of Moab. Here is a picture of all of us on the patio after dinner.
