Nov 2, 2017 - Cedar Breaks

The drive from Nevada to southwestern Utah yesterday, was lonely and somewhat dreary. We amused ourselves by guessing how far we could see into the distance. The flatness was interspersed with low mountain ranges and we concluded that each range was divided by about twelve miles of driving. As we got closer to Cedar City, things began to perk up. There were greenish plants and a few more cars. At the Walmart (gosh, it's been a long time since we've been to a store that wasn't part of a casino) we saw a number of women dressed like sister...

Sep 29, 2017 - Cedar City Utah

9/29 Cedar city KOA. Yes it was a KOA RV park but we did have all the amenities and we were right in Cedar City which is a sweet little (30 thousand people) college town. Josh, Janette, Abby and Emma came up for the night and we cozied into the trailer. It was actually very fun and I know Janette would concur because she won the Clue game. We had two great days looking at property in this red rock desert region and dreaming of the possibility of a family camp site only two hours from Las Vegas and 10 degrees cooler in the summer.

2017 fall road trip

Jul 1, 2017 - Baker, NV to Cedar City, UT

Baker to Cedar City Day 26: Friday June 30, 2017 Friday morning when Brian started the truck the check light stayed on so we decided to leave for Cedar City a day early. We called ahead for reservations. We couldn't get a place in the KOA (where we already had reservations for Saturday and Sunday) but they were already full. Using the internet Brian located the Cedar Breaks RV Park in Cedar City and we were able to get a one night reservation. So we got ready and headed south to Cedar City. We were about 30 miles down the road, in the...

Jun 24, 2016 - Panguitch

This had been an interesting but exhausting week. We arrived in panguitch last Friday and met with our 'boss' Richard. He gave us our general schedule for the first week which consisted Of Saturday off to settle in, Sunday and Monday to observe, Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday to work from 8 to 1 with someone else There to help out. Working in the Visitor center is busy: we've had about 400 to 500 people come through every day on our shift. Carol and I have divided up the duties to my satisfaction! When the job came up months ago, I...

Jul 31, 2015 - Kanab will have to wait :(

So about 70 miles outside Caliente, NV and in Utah we heard a horrible sound and then the truck engine sounded like a castanet. Tom pulled over immediately and tried to get us off the road – not too easy with the shoulder he had to work with. He opened the hood and I can only describe it as “a sparkplug was blown out of the cylinder”. Oh my, oh my, oh my. Tom was horrified and mystified and sure it was major trouble. I was the same but I remained calm and quiet which amazed both of us. Tom called AAA but he misspoke as to our location. We...

May 20, 2015 - Drive up to Duck Creek Village

On Tuesday Doug & Phyllis came up to visit us in Cedar City, they own a summer home in the mountain community of Duck Creek Village (located 30 miles from Cedar City) & they took us up to see their beautiful cabin. The weather was cold there & we had snow/sleet flurries while we were there. The elevation is over 8,500 ft, the views on the way to & from the cabin are beautiful. Thank you Doug & Phyllis for a great day.

May 19, 2015 - Cedar City, Utah

We left St.George on yesterday (5/18) & traveled a whole 54.1 miles to Cedar City, Utah. We are here to do a check it out kind of thing. We are staying at a KOA RV Park on the north end of town. After getting the 5th-wheel set up, we jumped back into the truck & set about checking out our surroundings. Pete noticed that there is a Veterans Park here in town, so we drove over & took it in. Its beautifully done & is pretty sobering. If you ever travel in this area, it is a must see.

Aug 24, 2014 - Morning Hiking

This morning we went hiking at Aspen Mirror Lake. Upon our arrival, we came across a turkey and her eight babies. We had the whole lake to ourselves. The water level was quite low compared to years past. Such a nice way to spend the morning. On our trip back to camp, we saw a trail across the lava bed near the far end of Navajo Lake. We've never walked across lava before, so off we went. It is amazing what grows/lives in and around the lava field.

Aug 7, 2014 - Hancock Peak Trail

While exploring some of the roads that take off from Rt 48 we found this very private and delightful campsite nearly a mile back in where we set up camp in a large meadow bordered by spruce, fir and quacking aspen. It was very peaceful until the next day when several ATV's came back in there scouting for deer and elk since bow hunting season opens August 16th. They were nice enough people, but the ATV's were very noisy. While in the area we decided to check out Hancock Peak Trail which had a trailhead not far away. We walked thru a large...

Jul 30, 2014 - Twisted Forest

It has been raining for a couple of days. This morning we woke to blue skies, so off we went for a hike in the Twisted Forest. What a view from up on top! We continued on down Rt 48 to Summit, and then went back on Dry Lakes Road. It was nice to get out of the motorhome for the day.

Jul 24, 2014 - Parawan Gap

Today we went on a new adventure. For two seasons we have been hearing about the petroglyphs at Parawan Gap. Today we drove out through the country side of Enoch to Parawan Gap driving home through Parawan, so that we could enjoy lunch at Parawan Cafe on the way home. Great soups and rolls!

Jun 30, 2014 - Golden Wall Trail in Red Canyon

As many times as we have been to Red Canyon, I never got to hike the Golden Wall Trail. I've heard that it is beautiful and it didn't disappoint. The trail starts in the campground between sites 24 & 26 and ends over by the vistor center. The whole hike probably was about 5 miles. Perfect weather today for this hike. So glad we finally got to experience it.
