Sep 11, 2013 - Red Cliffs

It rained all night and we heard the creek rising below our campsite. We didn't get up until about 9 since the rain sounded so good. The road over the quail creek was flooded so there was no way out without risking the truck. Not a great idea to try and do that so we decided to stay another day. This is another great thing about retirement-there are always adjustments to plans without worries of having to be back at a certain time! So we hung out and read and watched the rain come down. It poured several times and the flash floods got...

Sep 10, 2013 - On to Utah

We woke up to an overcast sky and clouds on top of Wheeler so it was time to move on. We headed down hwy which may take over as the loneliest road in the US. It started raining about an hour into our drive and didn't let up. It shouldn't be raining nonstop in Utah. We heard it was the monsoon but we thought southern Utah didn't get more than about 5 inches a year. We resupplied in Cedar City and almost did a boondock in the Walmart parking lot because of rain and it was 5 pm. But we goggled camping near Hurricane Utah and found a blm site...

Mar 15, 2013 - going nowhere fast

We filled up the motor home tank for the first time since we left Arizona, so happy that we didn't need the high priced stuff in California. After the fill Ken made a U-turn towing the car across six lanes of road. So glad that the streets are built on a spacious scale in Las Vegas. A quick uneventful drive took us out of Nevada, through a corner of Arizona and on to Leeds, just north of St. George. St. George often appears on lists of places to retire because of its benign climate and plentiful golf courses. We stoppeed at the Utah visitor...

Apr 25, 2012 - Leeds UT

We pulled out of North Las Vegas at 10:00 headed north on Las Vegas Blvd. on our way to I-15, northeast back into the very NW corner of AZ, then into the SW corner of UT, to today’s destination of Leeds UT. The weather was cloudy all day, with some drizzle thrown in. In the 4 weeks we have been gone, we have had almost no rain while we have been on the road – today, in the Nevada desert, we get rain. Go figure. After we set up camp, we had a little lunch and then loaded into the Jeep for a 45 minute drive to the South entrance of Zion...

Nov 9, 2007 - Leeds, Utah

I had a pleasant and uneventful drive today through the mountains of southern Utah. I went over some mountain passes that were more than 6,500 feet in elevation. The truck pulled the trailer up ok, although kind of slow. I stopped at a little town called Leeds in the south west corner of the state. Not much here - no gas station, no grocery store. It does have a big new Mormon church. Every little village has one and they are all new fancy brick buildings. Although the truck runs fine most of the time and has no trouble pulling the...
