arches & a side of fries

this past weekend, the mister and i loaded up the car with all our camera gear, the two pups, and our hiking shoes for a road trip down to arches national park in moab, utah. while he is forever a mountain man, i am endlessly in love with the desert, and couldn’t have been happier about our weekend getaway.

true to form, i was absolutely in love with the landscape, but fell a smidgen more in love with the food. it’s true. i’m a totally foodie and rate every vacation destination on what i eat. but it wasn’t just any food in moab. it was milt’s stop and eat. a classic diner opened in 1954, milt’s is all things roadside americana, and the burgers are to die for. we both indulged in the buffalo burgers, which i admit we devoured too quickly to photograph, but trust me, if you’re ever in moab, you HAVE to go to milt’s. shakes, chili fries, burgers, the works – they have it all, served fresh to order. and knowing you get to walk off all those calories in some of the states most beautiful national parks makes it all the more decadently delicious!

where’s your favorite roadside diner?

  4. I wish to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from this particular dilemma. As a result of surfing around through the the net and obtaining notions that were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you’ve sorted out as a result of your entire site is a serious case, and the kind which may have badly affected my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your web site. Your main ability and kindness in taking care of every aspect was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a point like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your professional and effective guide. I will not hesitate to recommend your blog post to any person who would like direction on this subject matter.
