Jun 20, 2015 - Grand Tetons and Utah

This morning started with showers in the campground shower room. We were given coupons for 4 showers when we checked in so we decided to use them! After that, we packed up camp. We stopped by the Ranger station so I could turn in my Junior ranger book and get my patch. The Ranger was nice but he had me stand up in front of the whole visitor center with a Ranger hat on to award the patch. Everyone clapped. Grandma said I was a good sport about it. On the way out of the park, still searching for bear and moose, we only saw a large male Elk....

We had a wonderful location; our campsite was right on the Weber River, we had a little bridge right outside our trailer steps to cross over a little stream to the river. Since we drove all day and got to the campground at 6:30 pm, we asked the campground host where the locals would go for a good home cooked meal and he suggested Kozy Café in a little town...

Jun 23, 2007 - On The Road Again

We're on the road again for a 330-mile trip to Holiday Hills northeast of Salt Lake City. That's a bit much for our lifestyle but it worked just fine. We left Virgin at 0600 to avoid the heat (104 for the high) and the early morning drive was refreshing (so was the mountain scenery bathed in the hues of sunrise). We enjoyed the pleasant drive till Provo when the traffic made driving a chore. I hate traffic especially when everybody else is in a hurry to get somewhere and we weren't. We passed up Cabella's but stopped at Camping World and...
