We stayed outside of Moab, about a 45 min drive to Miss and Arches. Maybe a hour to Canyonlands and Goblin Valley state park
On our way from Escalante to Green River we had lunch at Capitol Reef. We really wished we didn't have the trailer this day so we could drive up in it but the road by the visitor center was amazing.
Monday was laundry and shopping day. Green River was a old uranium mining town and a place they tested missiles. Now there is just a handful of restaurants, old building that are not occupied. I did have the pleasure of visiting the library and post office because I needed to get some insurance forms filled out for work. We also visited the dentist / clinic because Alex had an infected toe. After being there for 2 weeks I grew to love that little town. Everyone was super nice. I met the sheriff at the library and saw him on the road almost every day. The people in the grocery store knew me after my 12 visits. It might not be as charming as Moab but it was a great community that was willing to help me when I needed it.
