Jun 22, 2009 - Ely, Nev., to Springville, Utah

After a cold night camping in Ely, Nev., we headed this morning to Great Basin National Park. Because of its remote location at the center/far east part of Nevada, it is one of the least-visited national parks in the country. But its admission is free! The park’s top attractions are the Lehman Caves. We got to the park around 10:30 a.m., hoping to get on a tour without a reservation. The first available tours were at noon or 1. We chose the 1 p.m. tour because it was longer and more detailed. When we were deciding which tour, Brock asked...

Apr 18, 2009 - Springville, Utah

Today I started my trip north. I am now in Springville Utah, near Salt Lake City. It was 12 degrees C when I left Virgin but as I headed north it quickly dropped to six. It slowly climbed back up to 17 and it was very pleasant when I arrived in Springhill. It is very cold in Idaho and Montana so I am going to have a couple of very cold nights with temperatures close to freezing. It is warmer in Canada than it is in Montana. I will be happy to get this over with and get into Canada. I had problems with my debit card again. I stopped at a...

Apr 15, 2009 - Springville, UT - East Bay RV Park

/// Wednesday - April 15, 2009 Happy Tax Day :( The wind blew hard most all night. I recorded a high gust of 31 mph with average winds in the high teens and low twenties. Nancy said she didn't get much sleep. It was still blowing hard when we got up and started our departure routine. Even fighting the wind we managed to get hitched up earlier than expected and we were on the road by 8:00 A.M. As we cleared Moab we could really see the effects of the blowing dust. Combine that with the overcast skies and there was an eerie gray/brown hue to...

Nov 3, 2008 - Springville, Utah

I had an uneventful drive from Idaho Falls to Springville, which is just south of Salt Lake City. The traffic was really heavy through the city. Not fun to drive there. The day was overcast and gloomy with a low of 5 and a high of 14 C. I have been keeping one day ahead of a big snow storm that keeps threatening to catch up with me if I stay in one place too long. There are some parks that I want to see but if the weather is too bad I will push on to Las Vegas. Things I miss: Tim Hortans and Chinese Mandarin Oranges. I can't get Chinese...

Apr 15, 2008 - Springville, Utah

Today I continued west across southern Utah and then turned north on I15. Back on the same highway that I used to come south in November. Just outside of Green River I saw a sign that said no towns or gas stations for the next 106 miles. This is the longest stretch of land I have ever seen on a major freeway with no human habitation or services. I continue to see amazing things. This is what I like about travel. Shortly after leaving Green River, I came to the San Rafael Desert and the San Rafael Reef. The desert is small of not of...
