Hot air ballooning near Moab

Moab is in the American southwest on a high desert plateau (altitude 4021 ft.). It has hot and dry summer days and mild evenings. In June, the highs average 93F and the lows average 57F. There is relatively little rain, although there is the occasional afternoon and evening shower (June averages 1/2 inch of rain).

It would be advisable to come with sunscreen, and cool but sun protection clothing would be a good idea. Some warmer clothes for late evenings and early mornings would also be advisable. Since it can become uncomfortably hot in the sun by about noon, outdoor activities should be planned accordingly. Some people take an umbrella on hikes, for this reason.
