It’s been nearly a week since our last post, we’ve been very busy in Utah and Arizona. After a night in Pahrump, NV we wanted to see Hoover Damn. We drove through Las Vegas and found that the traffic to the bridge was backed up for miles. So we skipped the dam and just headed up to Utah to prepare to visit Mt. Zion National park. We stayed over night in one of Utah’s state parks, Sand Hollow. It boasted a large reservoir with red sand beaches. It was one of the nicest state parks we’ve seen on the trip so far.
The next day we drove into Mt. Zion National park. We had planned on 0nly driving through and going on to Bryce Canyon, but Zion was so beautiful we decided to stay the night. We parked the RV and the dogs and took off to enjoy the park. We rode the shuttle into the Canyon and enjoyed all the stops. We didn’t have time (or the gear) to hike the 2.5 miles up the canyon in the water, but we want to come back someday and stay longer.
After Zion, We decided to skip Bryce Canyon and head down towards the Grand Canyon. We stopped just outside of Page, AZ to stay the night and check out Horseshoe Bend. It was quite a view and rather scary at the edge since the wind was blowing very hard. The next day we headed into the Grand Canyon. We can’t think of much to say about the Grand Canyon because it has probably all been said before. It’s Big.
