Moab, Utah. "Land just short of the Promise Land." You should prolly jump in your car right now and hit the road running. This is the type of place to take your breath away (especially if you're from Seattle). Not only by altitude but the natural creation of sandstone arches and balanced rocks will truly stop you in your tracks. The unpredictable scale and erie silence that sits between these forms will capture you, twirl you around and throw your busy mind right back into perspective and away from itself.
You should really visit soon, really.
