Utah and Back travel blog

all pictures are scenery along US 89

































This narrative is going to be a short one. Today was a day of travel and because we would be driving through some mountains and across a couple of bridges, I drove and Bob took all the pictures. Unfortunately, he missed some incredible shots because they were high or had sheer drops.

We left Williams this morning about 8:30 MDT and drove both vehicles to the Pilot to gas up THOR. We drove both vehicles because we weren't sure we could get in there hooked up. After filling up and hooking up, we were on the way. Just outside of Flagstaff, we turned north on US 89. Sometimes called the National Park Highway, U.S. 89 links seven national parks across the Mountain West. In addition, fourteen other national park areas, mostly national monuments, are also reachable from this backbone of the Rockies. The southern section runs for 848 miles from Flagstaff, Arizona, to the southern entrance of Yellowstone National Park. According to Wikipedia. We climbed to over 6000 ft elevation.

We stopped in Page, AZ to stretch and did some shopping at Walmart. We also shared a combo meal at Subway. :)

We entered UT about 3:15 MDT and made it to Kanab about an hour later. Drove to the RV park, checked in and hooked up. It is still very HOT and we're under a heat advisory, 102 degrees when we arrived but as the sun sat, the temp started to go down also.

The rest of the evening, we just relaxed and rested. Tomorrow we're going to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. According to some of the Renegades who have visited there, it's better than the South Rim, which is the one everyone visits.
