Oct 12, 2009 - Glendale and Zion

Yesterday we drove around Zion National Park from Hurricane to the small community of Glendale, UT that lies between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Park. Our intention is to visit those two parks plus the north rim of the Grand Canyon. We are staying in a nice little RV park called Bauer’s Canyon RV Ranch. Today we got up early and, with Arnie on board, headed south for the 20-mile drive to the entrance to Zion. The drive into the park made an impression on Sue that follows. Driving into Zion Canyon it’s as though someone where making a...

Jun 23, 2009 - Bryce Canyon National Park (sort of)

June 23, 2009 We left Bauer’s RV Park about 1PM for Bryce Canyon National Park 35 miles north of our camp. The 89 highway north of Glendale is an easy going road that slowly rises to 6100 feet through pines, junipers and green meadows. Sparsley populated by ranches with cattle and horses grazing in the tall grass, the area was beautiful and we enjoyed the drive toward Bryce. We wished out-loud that one of Judy’s daughters should move here. We turned east on highway 12 and passed by two RV parks before we entered Red Canyon. This canyon is...

Jun 22, 2009 - The road to Utah

June 21.2009 Today we said goodbye to our friends at Orchard Ranch and headed North to Page,AZ. The road to Page filled me with many emotions as we drove along Highway 89 North. As we left the modern City of Flagstaff we passed through the Navajo Nation Reservation. We saw hundreds of poorly constructed huts and run down trailers along the highway. Not one tree or even a lousy tumbleweed on their desolate land. Most of the land was littered with broken down cars and trash. It must be a harsh life. Seeing this life of hardship and struggle...

May 18, 2009 - Home, Home on the Range...

Travel day from Gallup to Glendale, Utah on Sunday – 365 miles, across northern AZ through both Navajo Nation and Hopi Reservation, over Glen Canyon Dam into Utah. We checked in for the next 8 nights at Bauer’s Canyon Ranch RV Park. No cell service here but do have antenna TV and Wifi. The owners are very nice and friendly and gave us lots of good advice about where to go in the area. The RV Park is in "town" in a tight little valley between two high cliffs and canyons, but the town is only right along the highway and the ranch is right...

Sep 8, 2008 - Base Camp-Glendale, Utah

From our base camp we set out to explore Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Zion National Park in this part of our journey. Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park encompasses 1,200 acres of pink colored sand dunes. The Sand dunes are created by three factors: sand, high winds, and a unique influence upon those high winds. At Coral Pink Sand Dunes, a notch between the Moquith and Moccasin Mountains causes this unique influence. Wind is funneled through this notch, increasing wind velocity to a point where it can...

May 30, 2008 - Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks

Stayed at Bauer's Canyon Ranch RV Park; nice quiet park. Visited Bryce Canyon NP, Zion NP, Cedar Breaks Nat'l Monument, Iron Mission State Park, & Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. Hiked down in the hoodoos at Bryce, but our favorite was Zion; hiked Emerald Pools, Riverside Walk, & continued a mile or so on the Narrows. The Narrows is more like wading up the river, but lots of fun. Campground notes: nice tent area. We had site 5. Bathrooms weren't ventilated well and only cleaned about once a week. Campground was quite a distance from...

Our Travels

May 19, 2008 - Glendale, Utah

We drove up to Glendale, Utah today. It is really beautiful here. It is realy amazing how each place is different even though they are all in the desert. There is really a lot to do close by here so we will probably not go the the north rim of the Grand Canyon. It is about a 100 mile drive back. We really did a pretty good hike there on the south side so don't feel too bad. We don't have cell service here in the canyon we are in so you will need to e-mail to communicate with us. We should post lots of great pics in the next couple of days.

May 7, 2008 - Glen Canyon Dam - Bryce Canyon National Park

We left the Grand Canyon and headed toward Bryce Canyon National Park. On our way we stopped at the Glen Canyon Dam, AZ., which created Lake Powell in AZ. You don't realize how massive these dams are until you are standing in front looking at it. We then proceeded to Glendale Utah where we stayed at Canyon Ranch RV Park. It was a nice place that was located on a ranch with donkeys, horses, cattle and farmland. We found our walking sticks there which were very helpful on some of the hikes we took. This campground was between Bryce Canyon and...

Oct 18, 2007 - Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks

Unfortunately we had to leave the ATV riding in Marysvale behind, lots of other stuff to see and do in Utah before we have to get back to Georgia. We traveled south to Glendale, Utah and used it as a home base for traveling to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. We went to Zion National Park on Thursday and like all of the others that we have seen it was really pretty. Lots of red rock cliffs and canyons. In Zion there are two tunnels that you have to drive through that were built back in the 1920's when there were no dually's or...
