Nov 20, 2018 - Beaver Utah

Driving thru Salt Lake City..Nope Nada NO No no. Seattle used to be the worst place for traffic but it has now fallen to second place. To date this trip down has all been new to us as we have never been this way before.Other than the traffic chaos coming thru Salt Lake City the scenery on the interstates was pretty decent. Last day of the coldness as we stay ahead of some impending snow storm. To bad I had hoped to spend some time at Zion National Park. Temps High 7C L-6C Sunny sky

Jun 27, 2017 - Good news

Today was a good day. Yes, we're still in Beaver, but we ventured out this morning for some more sight seeing. We actually went back to Zion National Park. No not where we were before. Zion is larger than I thought and one entrance is on this side. We went to Kolob Canyons, it is a small part of Zion. In fact the only thing we were interested in, since we don't do a lot of hiking, was the scenic drive which was only 5 miles long! That and hiking are about the only things to do on this side. It's a good thing we have the senior pass because...

Jun 26, 2017 - Change of plans

1st HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR BABY!!! Well, they say variety is the spice of life and change is inevitable, and it certainly is happening to us. So Saturday night we collapsed after fretting all afternoon. We did sleep pretty good in anticipation of driving over to Moab yesterday to continue our vacation. We started the engine and disengaged the emergency brake and all sorts of alarms went off and all the lights on the leveling panel started flashing. We both looked at each other and said "fluid"! We remembered when we had a problem with the...

Jun 24, 2017 - SURPRISE!!

Well, as you can see we are not in Kanab! God is indeed good and watchful. Several days ago, we decided that we would rather drive on the interstate than a two lane road. Well, then as it turned out, the Brian Head fire sort of made that decision even more important. Also factored in was the power outage we suffered through from 1-2:30 this morning. As we were getting unhooked and packed, we learned that the outage was about a 200 mile circle. So here we are. As I wrote yesterday, the smoke we drove through was very widespread, and since...

Sep 10, 2016 - Day 5

We woke up on time again today. The thing with expensive hotels is, breakfast is never free! So, we loaded up in the car and ate pop tarts on our way back in to Yellowstone. Upon our arrival at Old Faithful, we literally missed the explosion by about 2 minutes *angry face*, which means we had to wait almost an hour and a half for it to go off again! That's an experience that's cool to see... once every decade or so. By the time it finally erupted, the girls were getting super crabby because they were so hungry. We ate in the cafe, were we...

Sep 23, 2013 - Bryce National Park

9/22/13 Left Hurricane to a beautiful sunrise, and moved a whole 89 miles up I-15 to Beaver, UT. Plan on using this as a hub for Cedar Breaks and Bryce Canyon. Little windy today and expect next few days to be in the 70s with nighttimes in the high 50s. We've found weather heaven here in Beaver, population 3,096. 9/23/13 Spoke too soon, got down in the 40s last night and we had not turned the heat on.....little nippy on the toes this morning, will not make that mistake again. Went up to Bryce Canyon NP today by going through the Red Canyon,...

Aug 21, 2013 - SR 153 to Beaver, UT

We had heard from our co-hosts Bill, Sharon and Joyce that SR 153 over the mountains from Rt 89 to Beaver was very special, so Nancy and I decided to check it out. Very special drive ascending to about 10,200 elevation. We found it to be similar to Cedar Breaks minus the dead Engleman spruce trees. Huge beautiful meadows and lots of great dispersed camping sites. Great views on the ascent from Rt 89, and really throughout the entire drive. We'll likely be returning here to tent camp as well as to see the fall leaves in mid September. One of...

Jun 16, 2013 - Another day in Beaver. We went to Beaver Damn and No Damn Beaver

6-16-13 It’s Sunday, (Father’s Day). The day got off to an early start. The Dog had to go out about Midnight and I had some trouble getting back to sleep. I’m getting forgetful, forgot to charge the phone and the camera so I had some issues today. For those of you who read the blog for yesterday, the photos didn’t attach. I have since gone back and corrected that if you’re interested. We were going to have an early start today so we got up at 6:30 had a Jimmy Dean breakfast croissant and a cup of coffee for breakfast. I didn’t like how I...

Jun 15, 2013 - First entry, catch up

6-15-13 Here we are its Saturday and I’m already 1 day behind on the blog. :( Let me go back to Thursday night (the 13th), about dusk the doorbell rang and there stood our neighbors from 2 doors down (Jack and Jan). They had brought us a parting gift for the trip. Two lovely bottles of quality wine and a card that said I couldn’t get into it till I got to Toronto and working on my blog. I think it was intended to lubricate my creative thinking, I’m sure that will work just fine! Thanks Guys! Bye the way, two bottles is all I can cross the...

Jul 2, 2012 - Cove Fort, UT - Another Spectacular Drive

(Ron Writing) We left Grand Junction, CO this morning and spent the entire day driving on what is probably the most scenic stretch of interstate highway in the entire country – certainly the most scenic we have seen. Leaving Grand Junction (elevation 4,600’) I-70 continues west and immediately starts climbing out of the Colorado River canyon to the high desert of eastern Utah. Around Green River, UT the scenery gets spectacular with very colorful and extremely rugged mountains and canyons. The elevations varied from around 6,000’ to almost...

Mar 27, 2012 - Beaver, Utah

Sunny but cooler, probably my last day in capris for awhile. More spectacular scenery today as we drive north on highway 89 to Page, AZ. Starting with Oak Creek Canyon drive, a narrow winding road through a deep colourful canyon. Patches of snow at the side of the road in the shaded areas from the winter storm last weekend. Between Flagstaff and Page the scenery was spectacular again, high elevation, 7,000 feet, we traveled along a wide flat valley floor with red cliffs in the distance and nothing between but dry grass, sage brush, and...
