Brad Weis & Don Gray are collectively Moab Internet, and since 1996 (1,170,908 visitors, when we last checked) they have maintained the Moab Information Site, which has community and portal pages for their area in southeast Utah.
Moab is world famous in bicycling circles for its slick rock trails, and a popular destination with tourists: perhaps less well known, it once held an 'Outside Magazine' top rating as the 'World's Most Scenic Dump'. You will see from the second picture that the town itself is very pretty. Check out the Utah physical map (map links are in the header for this item), and see how many world class scenic sites are close to hand, or foot, or indeed fat tire. Brad seems to be the photographer of the duo, and his galleries show many of the breathtaking features around where he lives. The third picture shows a winter scene of a monolith at the entrance to Arches National Park.
The area has all sorts of social and visitor activities, most of whom seem to be customers of Brad & Don, so as an example and for the last picture, we chose an image from the Moab April Car Show 2002, known as the 'Rod Benders Show'. We hope that the lady who wrote to tell us she was not interested in cars will forgive us, and that the custom car enthusiasts will also enjoy the landscapes.
