Aug 8, 2014 - Bryce - WoW!
I stayed in Moab, Utah on my Big Trip in '10 and visited Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. I didn't ever expect to see something that could match Arches in visual, mouth gaping, awe inspiring beauty, but I did today at Bryce Canyon National Park. The park is only 18 miles long across the ridge of a mountain. The Hoodoos flank one side of the ridge. There are many view points and I stopped at every one. Sometimes I had to make a couple of loops, but found a parking spot each time. the elevation climbs from about 7500 feet to 9100 at the...Jump to full entry
Aug 7, 2014 - Zion
The weather was perfect and today was the day I got to visit Zion National Park. Just prior to entering the park, I stopped at The Trading Post, a private enterprise right outside the gate, to see Becky. I had worked with Becky at Amazon in Coffeyville last year and I follow her blog. She's going to be working at Amazon in Fernley this year. She's barely 30, a college graduate, and lives full time in her little Cassita (a tiny travel trailer) traveling from one work camper job to the next. It was fun seeing her and I totally forgot to get a...Jump to full entry
Aug 6, 2014 - Best Friends Animal Sanctuary - Wow!
We left Las Vegas at 8:30 and I finished unhooking and setting up at 6:30 (I did lose an hour as I'm now on Mtn. Time) and I was just exhausted and felt weaker than I should. I plopped on my recliner and wondered why I was so darn tired, then remembered I was now camped at the 7200' elevation. I like out-of-the-way places and this certainly is. You'll see by the pictures. Today was super. Scenic drive north on Hwy 15 that eventually would have taken me to Salt Lake City, but I turned east after about 130 miles and headed to Kanab, AZ. Six...Jump to full entry
Jun 11, 2010 - Long Valley Junction, UT (Bryce Canyon NP)
We left Camp Verde just after 7 am, now I am not normally an early person, but we were up at 5 again, so it just seemed like a reasonable time to me. I checked out the camp we were headed to tonight and was disappointed. No internet, rumblings of a dirt road and it looked like we were parking in a patch of weeds, but for $9.00 a night, Ron was pretty determined. The drive was about 300 miles, which is all the farther we really want to travel on any given day. The scenery...amazing. Northern Arizona is full of color, shapes and textures that...Jump to full entry
