Jul 28, 2017 - Bryce Canyon Scenery

We had to kill a little time in the morning because it rained just as we left the RV, so we spent an hour or so in the hotel and gift shop. I posted a few pictures from that, but I put them with yesterday. Then we headed to the Canyon…it costs $30 per car to get in, but we had Glenda’s Senior Park Pass, so we got in for FREE. I could get in on hers, but I thought I had one of my own and can’t find it, so I bought one for $10 to make sure I have one…they are soon going up to $80! For those of you who are old enough for a senior pass, if you...

Jul 27, 2017 - Bryce Canyon, Utah

July 27th Well, we’ve been out a month today. We made our way straight down I-15 from Salt Lake City to a left turn on Rt. 20, over a 7990 ft. mountain (I got the RV up to about 35 on the hill, or should I say, our speed dropped no lower than 30 climbing the mountain.), to Bryce Canyon. We turned onto Rt. 12 through Red Canyon. I was a little worried about two tunnels we had to pass through that said clearance 13 ft. 8 inches. I think we’re OK over 12’8”, but I stayed in the middle of the road just to make sure. We got set up quickly at a...

Apr 29, 2017 - Zion National Park

Day 4 - Today's photos do not even begin to capture the awe-inspiring beauty and magnificence that is Zion National Park. The Mormon pioneers who came here in the 1800s appropriately named the region Zion, "the Heavenly City of God" and gave the enormous buttes and domes names like The Great White Throne, Court of the Patriarchs, Temple of Sinawawa, and Towers of the Virgin. Our day of travel began with the bus loaded and on its way by 8am, dropping us off inside the park at Zion lodge where we caught the park shuttle to the trailhead of...

Living Our Dream

Sep 28, 2016 - Hoodoos, Scenic By-ways and Friends - Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park – This was not on our original plans as it would mean some backtracking across Utah. My cousin Lya lives in Salt Lake City and we had hoped to meet up, but she had some silly concert to work in Vegas so we hoped we could work it out in Bryce. And I kid her, she was working with her favorite ever band U2 at the iheart radio concert. Bryce was also one of my mom’s most favorite park. So we called up Ruby’s RV park and were lucky to get 2 nights there. Unfortunately, Lya couldn’t get away to see us, but gave us some...

Aug 14, 2016 - More Trouble, Great Friends and Beautiful Scenery

Bryce Canyon Pines, Bryce, UT Sunday, Aug 14, 5 pm MDT While driving my car to the Flagstaff Honda dealer on Thursday, Aug. 4, I determined that the whine I’d heard while driving back from Phoenix was coming from the rear brakes. The service department replaced the brakes and got the car back to me in time to go shopping at Petsmart, Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond. While leaving Petsmart I got a phone call from the mobility scooter technician in Phoenix telling me the scooter was fixed. On Friday, I drove to Phoenix to pick up the scooter...

May 30, 2016 - Boulder City, NV to Glendale, UT

After getting used to driving with the fifth wheel behind us, we made good time traveling from Boulder City, NV to the Bryce Zion RV Park located outside Glendale, UT. This site was located in a mountainous area so we had virtually no cell phone or internet service. While the inability to have none of these electronic interruptions to our lives for a few days it was a little disconcerting for our family trying to reach us and not knowing why they could not do so. Patty really enjoyed feeding the dozen horses that were there and we really...

BIGHORN TOWPATH

May 13, 2016 - Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is about 20-30 minutes from our campground at Hatch. It was a nice drive through Red Canyon where we observed a "managed fire". This is a fire started by natural causes such as lightning. As long as it doesn't endanger humans, it is watched and allowed to burn itself out. Just outside the park are several modern hotels, stores, etc. We stopped at the Visitor Center long enough to figure out our plan for seeing the park. We quickly learned this is a long canyon with one road that follows the canyon. There a several overlooks...

Headed West 2016

May 12, 2016 - Riverside Ranch RV

We liked Monument Valley so much we decided to extend our stay thru Wednesday. We used it to catch up on things and generally relax. By the time we left this morning I knew if I ever get a chance to revisit, I will. Gorgeous and very peaceful. On our drive to our next campground in Hatch, Utah we stopped for lunch in Page, Arizona. As we were driving thru town we spotted Big John's Texas Barbeque. How could we resist? Nestled on the corner in what looks like an old gas station, the majority of patrons are escorted to tables outside under...

Headed West 2016

Sep 26, 2014 - Bryce Canyon City UT – Dixie National Forest – Red Canyon Campground

Spent a couple of relaxing days here in the Dixie National Forest near Red Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park. Toured Bryce Canyon one day. It is really pretty and all of the trees are a nice contrast to the red rock. That makes it different than the other Utah parks we’ve been in so far. We also toured Red Canyon. The rock formations are neat there, too, but I especially liked the tunnels. They look like giant arches, but they’re man-made. We spent our afternoons in the campground playing Mexican Train, relaxing and watching newcomers...

Retired at Last!

Sep 20, 2014 - Bryce Canyon, UT

Bryce Canyon was sunny and 78 degrees when we arrived Saturday about 1pm. With rain in the forecast we drove into the Bryce Canyon National Park and our first stop was Sunrise Point. We happened along just in time to hear the informative and funny Ranger Talk about the history and geology of the area. The view from Bryce Canyon and all the other view points along the 18 mile scenic highway were other worldly. Armed with info from the Ranger Talk we appreciated the beauty and specific circumstances of dolomite over limestone in this area...

Sep 7, 2014 - Bryce Canyon City

Bryce Canyon City is a town adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park. The town, formerly known as Ruby's Inn, was officially incorporated on July 23, 2007 under a controversial, short-lived state law. The population was 198 at the 2010 census. Bryce Canyon City is located some 20 miles east of Panguitch, just outside the park entrance at the northwest corner of Bryce Canyon National Park, about 2.5 miles north of the park's visitor center. The town lies alongside Utah State Route 12, near the park's popular Sunset Point. Reuben C. "Ruby"...

2014 RV Adventure

Jul 15, 2014 - Activities at Camp

For the morning we had arranged a Wagon ride tour that started close by and would take us out to Bryce Canyon rim. We went to the Ruby Inn gift shop at the hotel and Vicky was loving the jewelry. She did not have enough time before the wagon ride, so she swore to return. Gracie liked the wagon ride and sights. It was an hour ride total that took us to the rim and back.
