Apr 24, 2014 - Bryce Canyon

Woke up to another cool morning in Duck Creek Village, 21 degrees. Had coffee and breakfast at the condo. Mid-morning we set out for our ride to Bryce Canyon. Why is there a "Dixie National Forest" in the middle of Utah? Red Canyon is part of this forest. Located right along the highway for a very scenic ride. Spectacular oasis of rock - Bryce Canyon - sandstone hoodoos - cast their spell on all who visit. We're back at the condo checking all the weather reports. Snow is coming tomorrow afternoon to Duck Creek with 3 to 4 inch...

Apr 23, 2014 - Exploring Zion

Got up this morning and walked across the street for breakfast at the local cafe. As the temperature this morning was around 21 degrees, we hung out a bit for a leisurely morning at the condo as we waited for the temp to warm up. Headed out for about a 50 mile ride over to Zion National Park. What a beautiful place. The pictures definitely cannot do the place justice! It should definitely be a place to visit on your bucket list. (Steve and Ricky, we hope it's on your list for sure!) A beautiful ride through from the East entrance of the...

Apr 22, 2014 - Wind, Wind and More Wind

Left Tonopah, NV headed East for Duck Creek Village, Utah. We had thought the winds in Texas and New Mexico had been tough but this ride definitely took the prize for worst ever. Winds up to 45 mph, dust storms, dodging the free range cattle and trying to avoid the tumbleweeds made things rough. And we were committed as there was nothing and nowhere to stop for the next 192 miles. Up side.... no traffic of course....no other fools out there with us. Made a stop for lunch and gas in Caliente, NV and headed on. The last 30 miles took us up...

Sep 15, 2013 - Bryce Canyon National Park

9-15-13; Sunday We have a long day ahead of us with about 80 miles of road to drive within the park so Bridget is coming along for the ride. She loves the outings and makes a mess of the back windows with her nose! We finally got out a bit after 10:00am. Both Bryce and Zion are close to Duck Creek. Zion will be our exit from the mountain tomorrow (Monday). Bryce Canyon is a gorgeous park. You can’t see rock formations and colors quite like this anywhere else. There is a turnout with walking paths to get to the vista’s every couple of miles...

Sep 14, 2013 - Our Days @ Duck Creek

9-14-13, Saturday Still Overcast, looking forward to tomorrow with predictions of sunny days for the next few days, despite out leaving on Monday a.m. We plan to go into Duck Creek village today to have lunch with a friend of L&J’s at the local Pizza shop “Hot Mama’s Pizza”! We met J.J. early in our trip (first week) and it was good to see him again, a real nice guy and talented wood carver! Still not sure about the Propane leak detector reliability and leaving Bridget alone in the RV while we went to lunch, I decided to shut off all the...

Sep 11, 2013 - 9/11 through 9-13- Duck Creek

9-11 thru 9-13-13, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday Yesterday (Wednesday) we just hung around camp and chilled. It rained on and off, mostly on all day. Barb did some reading and I did a variety of little things, just taking it easy. We have seen a lot of critters around camp. We’ve seen lots of little squirrels gathering food for the winter and storing it in a hollow log next to the rig, Deer (a total of 9), bunnies and birds. It’s fun to watch them unobserved. Had a problem with the kitchen outlets yesterday morning but figured out that they...

Sep 10, 2013 - Arrival at Duch Creek Utah, 8,900 ft elevation

S-10-13, Tuesday This morning I had to prepare the rig for several days of “dry camping” (completely self-contained). Filled the fresh water, drained everything else, ran across the street to the Shell Station and topped off the propane and gas tank. Ready to go! The rain was ever present on the drive, and it was a long one today, about 300 miles in bad weather, which slows you down. The topography changed a lot during the course of the drive. We went from almost desert in Moab to farmland at about 5,500 feet. The nature of the rock...

Aug 15, 2013 - Near Duck Creek Village, UT

Day 3 near Duck Creek Village, UT 8/15/2013 We left Las Vegas around 9:15 thinking we had plenty of time to meet up with our friend Ricky in Cedar City by noon. Well, as it turns out, we were wrong! We forgot about the time change between Las Vegas and Utah. It was a good thing that Ricky was resourceful. When we finally figured out that there was a time change, we called him to let him know we would be an hour late, he took the time to get his oil changed. After a leisurly lunch, we started up the mountain to Gerrys' cabin in Duck Creek...
