Travels In Serenity

Jun 20, 2011 - Worthing Adventure 2011 Day Eight

8:00am Starting out – today is driving …driving…driving. We came south of Crater Lake so we had to go up and then down the mountain. The temperature outside the car went from 54 degrees to 42 degrees in less than 5 minutes – brrr! We decided to take a road that cut across the state but unfortunately that means we do a lot of back road driving today. 9:15am We are driving down State Highway 422 now. We came across a section of road that had so many little creatures running across the road that it appeared the road had lines in it. They...

We left at 9:30 to drive the barren but beautiful ribbon of road to Wendover,NV where we picked up interstate 80 through Bonneville salt flats and into Salt Lake. We then climbed over Parley's Pass in the Wasatch Mountains to stay at the Park City RV Park. a The park has astounding views and we have our own patio complete with a Tiki hut. We had dinner at Cisnero's in scenic old downtown Park City.

Jun 19, 2010 - Heber Valley & Sundance

To the south of Park City on the other side of the mountains is Heber Valley with the towns of Heber and Midway. We spent the past few days exploring the valley. Midway has a hill in the middle of town known as Memorial Hill with a commanding view of the surrounding area. The hill is a veterans memorial erected at the summit and a fitting tribute to the veterans of Wasatch County. Midways architecture resembles a Bavarian village and we drove around town and photographed a few of the buildings. Lunch was a little different take on pizza...

Jun 15, 2010 - Hanging In Park City

One of the items we needed to take care of here was to have Patricia's finger looked at by a doctor and that took two days. The next two days were cold and rainy. The weather has been great the last two days and we walked around Main Street, the restaurant and retail center of town. We had a couple of meals on main and did some window shopping and drove around sightseeing. Today we drove to the snow line in order to hike on the top of the mountains, what a great view of the valley's and snow covered mountain tops. The hiking is a little...

Jun 14, 2010 - Park City, Utah

Park City, Utah, is a ski resort north of Salt Lake City where many of the skiing events in the winter Olympics were held. Because it is up in the mountains, Park City is cool in the summer; for us it was a refuge from the heat that was baking us during our journey to the west coast. We took a gondola ride (used by skiers in the winter) that ascended over two mountain tops separated by a deep canyon. On the way up the gondola stopped for a few minutes while we were suspended over the deepest part of the canyon--a little too much excitement...

Spring/Summer 2010

Jun 9, 2010 - Park City, UT

While we could have stayed in Moab and found places to explore we were done with the heat. Afternoon temps were in the mid 90's and it made outdoor activities difficult. So we headed for the hills-literally the ski resort town of Park City in the mountains west of Salt Lake City. It was a 250 mile trip which climbs most of the way out of the canyons. Tomorrows high is forecast to be in the mid 60's.

Jun 3, 2010 - Shake out trip in westy

We left Park city in Westy with snow still in the back yard to warm weather in Southern Utah. By way of background we bought Westy in April from Ryan Haagensen of Norseman RV Sales in Hemet California. He delivered it to Las Vegas where Mieke and J picked it up and drove it to Park City. The Chassis is a 2005 Mercedes Srinter with a camper extension by Westfalia in Germany. The interior is equipped by Air Stream in the USA. The camper was not put into service until 2007. It was then bought by some people in CA and used in 2007 and 2008....
