Jun 21, 2015 - A day with NO National parks or scenic rocks
I was looking forward to a shorter day of driving today and not having to look at more rocks! We left the Coalville campground this morning at 9:45. Today most of the driving is Interstate which is unusual for us but a lot faster. It got hot really fast; we watched the temperature on the car's thermometer get hotter and hotter. We stopped around 12:30 at a Flying J truck stop at Scipio, UT because they had a petting zoo and we were going to have a picnic lunch. It was burning hot and windy so sand was blowing all over. Grandpa said this is...Jump to full entry
May 31, 2010 - Circleville, UT
Just south of Marysvale is another small town, Circleville, hometown to a young Robert Leroy Parker AKA Butch Cassidy. His family moved to Cirleville from Beaver UT shortly after his birth in April 1866. At 16 he went to work for a local cattleman named Mike Cassidy and was schooled in the ways of roping, shooting and cattle rustling. He later took the Cassidy name along with Butch, a nickname he acquired while a butcher in Wyoming. In Marysvale a old open air dance hall sits abandoned, however it is a reminder of the excitement and...Jump to full entry
May 29, 2010 - Riding The Piute Trail
When we first arrived on Friday the wind was blowing a steady 25-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph and we could not set up our site or even open the coach slides. Dust was thick in the air and it was reminiscent of the wind storm in Carlsbad. By bedtime the wind had relaxed enough to open the slides and get to sleep. Saturday began with a visit to the adjoining Rose Ranch Resort who in conjunction with the RV Resort is putting on the Beaver Creek Rendezvous, a mountainman recreation from the frontier days, complete with period camp. We then...Jump to full entry
Jun 21, 2009 - Utah-Father's Day
June 21, 2009, Sunday - Day 7 - Happy Father's Day! It rained in the wee hours this morning, but didn't last long. The thermometer read 49 or 50 degrees when I went into the kitchen; it's the end of June and Utah is still having winter weather, but with the low humidity, you can go out in short sleeves. Unbelievable! We left the campground at 8:15 a.m. this morning heading for Central Valley, Utah in search of a small country church, St. Elizabeth Catholic Church; the GPS was clearly confused and we ended up at the Mormon Church. Just a...Jump to full entry
Jun 20, 2009 - Utah, Here We Come
June 20, 2009, Saturday - Day 6 - The rain woke me at 4:30 a.m. this morning; not a heavy rain, just a shower and it didn't last very long. I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn't, so decided to get up around 5:15 a.m. and turn the coffee on, the sun was already up. It's amazing how early the sun is up here in Arizona, but we're on Mountain time too. It's 55 degrees this morning! I should have brought warmer clothes! We were on the road again today with Utah as our destination for tonight. As we readied the rig to leave the campground,...Jump to full entry
Jun 16, 2008 - "Schools out...."
Schools Out…. Well at least that is how we feel….John has finished up with Ford for a while so we are foot loose and fancy free and looking for fun! We found it on Big Rock Candy Mountain in Marysville Utah. Four wheeling heaven just waiting for us! We rented two big Hondas for two days and headed out. Two trails were recommended to us we did a short 4 hour trip the first afternoon and an 8 hour that stretched into almost 10 the second day. What a blast! We climbed straight up the mountain, visiting old mining towns on the way. They are all...Jump to full entry
Oct 13, 2007 - Our New Toys...
After much research, comparison and shopping we finally bought our new toys. We decided on Can-Am ATV's, Rick got the yellow 800 and I got the red 650 and what fun they are. Originally we thought about getting one that two people could ride on, but after talking to many different people we decided to get two. We bought them in Gunnison, Utah which is about 60 miles from where we are staying now which is Marysvale, Utah. This area is home to the Paiute Trail which is one of the most famous and largest ATV trail systems in the country with...Jump to full entry
