Oct 7, 2014 - One Last Visit

On Monday, we said goodbye to family in Provo and turned south to the bity town of Salina, Utah, about 120 miles away. The drive down Highway 89 was really pretty. There are lots of farms in this part of Utah and of course, the huge Mormon temple in Monti is spectacular. We enjoyed the fall scenery on the drive very much. -- We will stay two nights at the Butch Cassidy RV Park in Salina. It is a small park, kind of pretty, next to the highway. The bathrooms are clean and the sites are ok. There is some traffic noise, but it isn't...

Pretty Damn Nice!

May 7, 2014 - Out & About

Salina is a very small town with not a lot to do or see, unless your into riding quads. The owner of the RV Park told us there are lots of 4-wheel trails close by. We did get out & do some Geo Cache, there were several in town, but they were right in some of the residential areas. We have a real problem with running around in neighborhoods looking for cache. You never know what people will do if they see you snooping about, so we opted out those searches. We did get out for a couple of rides, mostly up & down Hwys 89 & 24....just wanted to...

May 2, 2014 - We have moved on to Salina, Utah

Hello from Salina, Utah. We are here for a week (we think) scheduled to leave on the 8th, we're waiting here for our mail to catch up with us. Most attractions/sights are several miles from here, so this will be a quiet week. We were talking this morning & sort of decided that if our mail gets here early, then we'll probably bug out of here. We'll see. We arrived here yesterday & are staying at Butch Cassidy RV Park/Campground. We are unable to post photos at this time, the signal for our MiFi & our cell phones are really bad. I tried to...

Aug 28, 2013 - Utah

We were heading to Reno but we seen on John & Ann blog that there is smoke from the fires in California. Last year in Montana we had enough smoke to do us. It was from fires in Idaho. So were heading south will most likely stay around St George through Labor Day then to Las Vegas We were on interstate 70 all day today. Traveled 198 miles and it was beautiful but was nothing out here. One sign said 100 miles to the next services. There was about three signs that said there was a town at that exit but we never saw a town. It is amazing to us...

Don't wake me up

Oct 22, 2012 - Salina, UT

We started our trip back home. We did not want to go back through Salt Lake City so chose to take I-70 to Salina, UT. What a choice that was! Capital Reef National Park is off of I-70, but unfortunately with the 5th wheel on, we didn't want to take a chance in taking the rig into the park. We came to a rest stop along the route though and experienced San Rafael Reef right there along the highway. Absolutely beautiful! We continued on our way and cut through the most beautiful red rock canyon. The sights were just amazing and to think we...

Moab Utah

Sep 13, 2012 - Valley of the Goblins

We got a late start from Moab this morning and since it’s usually a long way between gas stations, we stopped for gas at a shell station just outside of Moab. The station didn’t have the prices posted so that should have been a tip off that it was going to be expensive. Up to today the most we’ve paid for gas was about $3.89. This place was the topper at $4.29. It a good thing I only needed about 25 gal. Once out of Moab, we jumped on I70 with the intention of not stopping until this evening, but I remembered that at the wedding one of...

Jul 12, 2012 - Utah hotel swimming

The hotel in Utah had a pool. Finally we can swim! We only swam for 30 minutes because Daddy didn't want to stay there long. The water wasn't deep so Jordan was able to swim. That's pretty much all we did all day. We also grabbed some fast food around the area. That's it for today.

Jul 4, 2012 - Rodeo in the Mountains

We can officially say, we have started our travels homeward bound, as California was the furthest west of our travels. Paul said he wanted to go home today - we can truthfully tell him we are on our way, it will just take a while. Last night when we checked into our hotel, it was 100 degrees outside, and we walked into the hotel room that did not have the air conditioning on and it was hot! We turned it on, and it did work, but it took quiet a while to cool off the room. Sure makes us thankful for 1) a place to stay and 2) that there was...

Aug 14, 2011 - Day 32: "The loneliest highway in the United States"

I kid you not. Hiway 50 across Nevada and western Utah has to be the least populated area of the United States. Highway 50 in Nevada has about 3 towns; and the first 90 miles of Hwy 50 in western Utah has NO towns. But... the beauty is ruggedly spectacular! LOOK magazine, July 1986 issue, called Highway 50 "the loneliest highway in the United States." We agree. Today we did the one way road through Great Basin National Park. We had never heard of this park until we were studying the map. It has diverse habitat, goes from 5000' elevation to...

Sep 9, 2010 - To Capitol Reef National Park

After breakfast, I headed north to Hwy 70, then west to highway 24 and Hanksville, UT. Turned right at Hanksville and enjoyed the scenery into and through Capitol Reef National Park. Capitol Reef is in an area called the Waterpocket Fold, a giant buckle in the earth's crust. The Fremont River runs through the fold and there is an historical Mormon farm area with a museum and fruit orchards where you can pick fruit and eat it there....for free. Pretty cool! I stopped at the Visitor center, as I did in every park I saw, then had lunch in a...

Jun 15, 2009 - Salina, UT

The drive along Highway 89 From Kanab up to I-70 was very scenic. This is also the best route to get to Zion Park. As promised, the campground we stayed at had dozens of bunnies, alon with an aviary. Tyler really perked up, and spent the evening hunting them with his nose. The bunnies are all domestic. The manager's mother lives in one of the trailers, and we watched her feed them by hand. They were every color: black, brown, white, tan, gray, etc. We spent just the one night here, on our way to Palisade, CO.
