Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and with the extended break we decided to take a trip to Moab and check out Arches National Park. If you've never been, you should make it a bucket list item. The views and hiking trails are incredible the trip was fantastic. But there was a stop along the way that opened my eyes to a gas station that is out of this world.

Along the trip, I had an unfortunate and unexpected bloody nose. This one was bad as it wouldn't stop for almost 20 minutes. It happened right as we were getting off Interstate-70 in Crescent Junction, Utah. Luckily, as we pulled off there was a gas station and convenience store where I could clean up a bit. But this was no ordinary gas station.
