Earlier this summer I took a break from the crazy at Outdoor Retailer and drove down to Moab for the night. The sleeping quarters for the evening included 1/2 of the back seat and 1/2 of the trunk of my rental Maxima parked on the bank of the Colorado River, and an $8 outdoor bench cushion bought in the 'as-is' section at Ikea. It was hot as hell that night (rainshowers prevented me from opening my windows), but a few cold beers brought at least some reprieve. 

After a restless couple hours I got up at 4am to head into the park, fingers crossed that I would have at least a moment of quiet time at Delicate Arch.
