Oct 11, 2018 - Made it to Utah

We left out of Eden Idaho early Tuesday morning. Heavy rain was predicted to come in around 10am on Tuesday and breaking down camp in the rain is so not fun. So we decided to get up early and get out before the rain came. It was chilly that morning but just sprinkling rain when we left so that worked out pretty good. We had a nice drive to our next location of Heber City Utah. Our first time in Utah, and we passed through some beautiful scenery along the way. We saw several snow capped mountains and some beautiful land as we cruised along...

2018 Life in our RV

Aug 24, 2018 - Heber City, UT

/// August 24, 2018 A Travel Day: With a short trip of around 100 miles we delayed our departure from Fort Bridger. Around noon we finally left Fort Bridger and headed west on I-80. Our route today would take us most of the way on I-80 and then Hwy 40 south to Heber City. The road conditions today were good. The traffic was moderate but not bad for I-80. The weather was mostly clear and the scenery was bland until we entered the State of Utah. I made a wrong turn at the Jct. of I-80 & I-84 but was able to turn around without issue. We...

Aug 16, 2018 - Winnemucca, NV to Deer Valley, UT

August 16, 2018 Round Table out of business so we went back to the BBQ Pig and Pub where we have eaten in the past as it is within walking distance. Nothing special but Bob had Tri-tip sandwich and I had a hamburger with Ichy IPA which was good. Went to Ridley’s Family Market (somewhat like a small Safeway) to pick up freshly made coffee, scone and lunch sandwich for Bob. Very nice market with fresh food which is good to know for our return visit. Left town by 7:45 to try to beat the heat and get to SLC Sprinter service for a diagnostic. We...

Sep 20, 2017 - the scenic Heber Valley

We were able to see this gorgeous area with gorgeous weather, showing off the fall colors, sparkling lakes and mountains. The tour began on the Heber Valley Railroad, a historic diesel-powered train that traveled Provo Canyon, Deer Creek Lake and Weber Valley farmlands. The old train is nick-named The Creeper. We had no problem with the speed, but it could have used a shot of WD-40! The area has a prosperous look and parts of it function as Salt Lake City's playground. We saw people sailing boats, wind sailing, trout fishing, zip lining,...

Sep 19, 2017 - a change of plans

The plan for today was to go to the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. From what we've read it is typical of Utah. Colorful arid rocks loom above a lake created by a dam across the Snake River. However, a cold front came through. It was warm and sunny where we were camped, but as soon as we climbed up a few passes on the way to the gorge, we were in the clouds and it was 42º and raining. We wondered if it would be snow if we continued to climb. Never mind! We tuned back, hitched up the motor home and made our way a few more hours west....

Apr 13, 2017 - Elko to Deer Valley

April 13, 2017 Clear morning but today is characterized as WIND, 30-35 mph. It just beat us up all day. Bob did a great job of driving. Mid-morning I got a text from a very good friend who reads the blog. Jackson and Sandra were returning from their home in Montana to St. Helena and would be driving through SLC on I15. We got to Dave’s Auto Service in Centreville about noon. They hooked us up to the diagnostic tool and sent us off for about an hour. We were on the I15 frontage road which had lots of traffic, a big mall and fast food places....

Oct 27, 2016 - Heber City Utah trains

Oct 28-29 Heber City UT We finally left WY and headed into Utah. Our first stop is the Salt Lake City area to do some more exploring. Mike heard about a train ride that he wanted to do so we headed towards Heber City. We found Wasatch Mountain State Park to camp in for a couple of nights. It is almost time to close for the season so it is not too crowded. The mountains are pretty as are the willows and cottonwoods that are still a bright yellow. But surrounding the park are a lot of big houses. I was told by the campground staff that the...

Jul 11, 2015 - Heber City, UT

It has rained every day since we left...we wanted to get out of the heat!! Only got nine holes of golf in and a small hike in Sundance, which was a disappointment. Next week, we visit Park City, Deer Valley and golf a couple of times, hopefully. We are scheduled to play Soldier Hollow, which was built for the Winter Olympics cross-country site.

Sep 12, 2014 - Ely, NV to Heber City Utah

September 12, 2014 We left a little after 8:00 for Great Basin National Park near Baker, NV (70 miles). The Great Basin stretches from California’s Sierra Nevada to Utah’s Wasatch Mountains and is named for its lack of drainage to the ocean. This desert mountain island contains Wheeler’s Peak (13,036 foot summit) groves of bristlecone pines and Lehman Caves. We were fortunate to be able to take a 1.5 hour tour of the limestone caverns at Lehman Caves. (After Labor Day, tours are given on a limited basis in many areas.) The Ranger was...

As check-in at Mountain Valley is after 2:00 PM we took our time to pack-up. We finally departed Cedar City at 9:45 A.M. and headed north on I-15. Road conditions were good. We hit just a couple of short road construction zones that did little to restrict traffic. The level of traffic...

Jun 2, 2014 - Denver, CO to Deer Valley, UT

June 2, 2014 Up by 7:00 with workmen all around us. On the road by 8:30 for a long day, 500 mile drive. Fortunately, there is not a cloud in the sky. Driving on Colorado Blvd. from Josh’s place to HWY 70/25 took almost half an hour to go 5 miles. I think it is the first of several times that we have driven from Denver to Cheyenne on Hwy 25 without 25 mph plus winds. We reached Interstate 80, our old friend, by 10:00 and will take it home to Rte 12 in Sonoma. Beautifully cool day for driving. We have driven the route several times but we...

May 31, 2014 - Deer Creek State Park

We spent 5 nights here. We mainly read, rested, talked, ran (Jeff) or walked. I got to see two of the prettiest birds: a Hairy Woodpecker and an American Goldfinch! We spent one day at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. The 'Sisters of Salvation (young Morman missionary women)' showed us through Brigham Young's house. The best part of the day was when we watched and listened to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse. They sang 'Be Thou My Vision' and I resisted the urge to sing along with them! Their 360 voices sounded like heaven to me!
