What Beautiful Country we are seeing! We had no idea of what we would see on our ride through Utah!
Shortly after leaving St. George Utah on Thursday morning, we drove through Zion National Park. It was beautiful... but honestly, now that we have drove through so much more of Utah's great Rocks, it was no more impressive than all that we drove through (for free!) later on.
After the ride through Zion National Park, we were ready for a break, and what luck! there was a lot with vacant RV spaces, and shade... and chairs!
We didnt ride far on Thursday, since we were meeting up with Ginny and Mike again, and they had further to go... so we found an RV park/campground in Red Rock RV Park, out of Panguitch, UT.
We pulled in and asked about the tents sites... then the next question... "how cold has it been getting here at night?" The answer? about 40. Okay... oooh... how about those cabins over there??
They were only $33 so we took a cabin!
Ginny and Mike rode in about 6pm...
... and after they settled into their cabin, we enjoyed a campfire for the first time on the trip. Jeff and I had gone into the little town of Panguitch before they came, and splurged on groceries for dinner... hot dogs!!
Friday, after a stop for breakfast at the restaurant nearby...
... we made the spectacular ride on the Scenic 12 byway. It was Spectacular!! Just a few minutes up the road, we had to stop to take pictures! A man offered to take a picture of the four of us.
Now they can show their vacation photos, and tell their friends that they saw America in Style!
We settled in at Green River State Park, in Green River, Utah for the night.
We asked if there was a liquor store in town, and we were told to go to the truck stop down the road. The truck stop sent us to the restaurant and gift shop next door. Here is the liquor store!
