After Capital Reef, we moved to stayed at Archview RV Resort in Moab Utah.  A nice RV park only in was Jeep Safari Week and every RV park was full.  All you could see was every type of Jeep and ATV.  Moab, it turns out is the Dirt Bike and Jeep capital.  From Archview RV Park we could easily get to Arches NP and Canyonlands NP.

Utah Rocks Part 1 (Colorado Springs, CO)


Utah Rocks (1 of 1)

This pretty much sums up Utah.

Utah has more beautiful national parks than any other state IMHO.  We left the Grand Canyon and headed north to Utah.  We stayed at an RV park, Bauer’s RV park, between Zion and Bryce so we could see both without moving.

People ask us “which National Park we like the best” ,  Each has its own character and special features.

On the Move (Glendale, UT)


We are now officially on the move doing the National Park tour.  So I will make each blog a different National Park.  First is the Grand Canyon. 

The first thing we do when we go to any National Park is to go to the Visitor’s  Center and get the lay of the land.  See what there is to see, what  free shuttle bus service there is, what ranger talks are being given and see the movie about the park.  We arrived at the Grand Canyon Visitor’s Canter around 10AM.  It was cold and it started to snow.  It was that wet, heavy, large flaky snow.  It snowed so hard that is was almost a white out.  We went through the visitor center and decided to call it a day and go home.  The snow was coming down so hard it blocked my satellite reception for a few hours.  I was not a “happy camper!”

The good new is the next day was a beautiful sunny, warm day.   The snow started melting early in the AM.

Now for some pictures.  And do we have pictures, only 364 between the two of us.  Here are just a few.

First a video:
