Thursday, May 31st, I arrived at Humphrey RV in Grand Junction for a couple of repair items. They are right in the peak of their busy season, so I was prepared to be there awhile. However, they finished quickly and I was on the road by noon. They have to order one part, so I will need to make another trip back there in the next few weeks.  Read More

Last Days In The Desert

May 16 to May 30

On May 31st, I have an appointment in Grand Junction, CO at the RV dealer where I purchased the Nash to perform a couple repairs before my warranty expires the end of June.

Capitol Reef National Park

Monday, May 14

Monday morning I break camp and head east on Hwy 12. Today’s drive will take me about 70 miles to a BLM dispersed camping area on Hwy 12 a mile west of the Capitol Reef National Park boundary. Hwy 12 crosses Boulder Mountain, reaching an elevation of 9,606ft at the pass. I enjoyed the cool temperature going over the mountain.  Read More

A Few Days in Escalante, Utah

Wednesday, May 9 to Sunday, May 13, 2018

The drive from Bryce to Escalante is only about 50 miles.  It’s nice to have a short travel day 🙂  I find a lovely camp on the edge of a cliff in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, about 8 miles east of the town of Escalante.  Read More

In the Land of Hoodoos

Friday May 4 to Tuesday May 8

I have wanted to visit Bryce Canyon National Park for several years, so I’m excited about finally going there. The Bryce visitors center and campgrounds are at about 8,000 feet elevation, meaning it doesn’t warm up until much later than the other national parks in Utah. Read More

Wednesday, May 2 to Friday, May 4

Wednesday turns out to be a very rainy day, so it is a good day to go to the library in Page. All my devices have updates that need to be installed, for which I need wifi. I spend about three hours in the library and then run by Safeway for a couple items. As I’m driving home, the rain is fairly heavy.  The road leading to camp goes through a good size wash. When I get to it there is a few inches of water running. The BLM has installed some type of rubber matting in the wash so there is good traction and I drive through with no problem. Without the matting that wash would be a mess every time it rains as there is a fair amount of traffic on this road.  Read More

Page, AZ is about 30 miles east of my camp on the Paria River. It is on the east side of the Colorado River at the location of Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. In addition to sightseeing, I need to go to the grocery store and there is a Safeway in Page. Saturday morning I take a drive over there.  Read More

A Slot Canyon Hike

Wednesday, April 25th

One of the most popular hikes in this area is Wire Pass Canyon. The trailhead is on House Rock Road about eight miles south of Hwy 89. This is also part of one of the most popular hikes in the US. This hike can start at Buckskin Gulch or at Wire Pass Canyon which ends in Buckskin Gulch. The hike continues on down Buckskin Gulch to the confluence of the Paria River. And from there on to the confluence with the Colorado River at Lees Ferry. This involves hiking in the river a good part of the time. The hike is about 44 miles and takes 4 days. Read More

Beautiful Camp on the Paria River!

Wednesday, April 18 to Sunday, April 22

Early Wednesday morning I prepare to head out for my next camp. I turn on my TPMS to get a pressure reading on the tires. I always check my tire pressure before starting out on a travel day. Usually I will check it the morning before, but didn’t this time. One of the trailer tires was down to 15 pounds – not good 😦 Read More
