Zion to Seattle

April 15, 2017 Yesterday we left Zion and made our trek back home. It was mostly sad to leave Utah but we did our best to make the best of it. On our way to Nevada we stopped by the Salt Flats. They were impressive but wet so we couldn’t drive on them. For dinner…

Zion National Park

April 14. 2017 People told us about Zion. They warned us. They said it was their favorite park. Still, we weren’t prepared for the impressiveness hat is Zion National Park. We drove through the typical Utah desert and then you get to Zion and it is so vast. You begin by being dwarfed by this…

Bryce Canyon National Park

April 13, 2017 We had the most amazing time at Bryce yesterday. We hiked the Navajo loop/Queens Garden trail and it was beautiful. You ascend into hoodoos and then walk through an alpine forest. It reminded me of home. We stopped for lunch at the bottom and just sat looking at the red rocks. The…

Arches National Park

April 10, 2017 Just spent 2 days in Moab. We got there on Saturday and went to the store. Kirk saw a great deal on firewood so he bought three bundles. Of course we get to the RV resort and there’s no campfires allowed. The camp sites were tight and the shower sucked but we…

Antelope Island State Park

April 8, 2017 We drove from Pendelton to Salt Lake City yesterday and it was pretty easy. We stopped in Boise for lunch and there were so many families and kids it was crazy. Things started to get familiar remember our previous trip. Kirk says Goldie gets better gas mileage than our rental but I…

Seattle to Pendleton

April 7, 2017 First night in Goldie was a success. We drove from Kent to Pendleton with no issues. We thought about going to the casino but the bed looked so enticing. We watched maybe 20 minutes of the British Baking show and fell asleep. We were soon awoken by the strong winds of eastern…
