After leaving Grand Canyon NP we headed north to Kanarraville, UT and the Red Ledge RV Park, a small but very nice little park (22 sites with full hook-ups) conveniently located near Zion National Park and just a day trip from Bryce Canyon National park. Kanarraville is located about 12 miles south of Cedar City on I-15. Great little park but I recommend reservations. SOB
It has been on the bucket list for years. One of the most iconic and magnificent places in America and this year, finally, we made it there; the Grand Canyon is “awesome” in the true meaning of that word, to inspire awe or wonder.
We stayed in Grand Canyon Camper Village in Tusayan, AZ, just one mile south of the park entrance. Each morning we arose, walked across the street and caught the free shuttle into the park. Once there we hiked, or rode the convenient shuttles which took us to the most scenic spots along the south rim. in the evening we caught the return shuttle back to Tusayan. It was a Grand experience.
We spent a week in Pocatello, ID where we lived when we sold everything and hit the road as nomads. we return each year, usually at about this same time. We viit friends and relatives and see doctors. Merre’s 92 year old mom lives in Blackfoot and we like to check in. Merre’s youngest brother, Daniel, lives there as well and we still have many friends in Pocatello. We usually state at the Ft. Hall casino, just off of I-15 . They have a nice little RV park, I’ll get a review up soon. On the first day we were there we drove over to Shoshone Falls in the Snake River Canyon just outside of Twin Falls. Merre had never seen the falls, and spring, when the river is high, is the optimum time, as you’ll see from the pictures.
Just about a half mile down stream of the falls is the very spot where Evel Knievel attempted his motorcycle jump over the Snake River Canyon. He failed, of course. but the TV coverage made him world famous. Here’s the spot:
This is my first post in quite a while. I am making some changes and will be posting more frequently from here into the future.
A Canadian border crossing in your RV can be nerve-wracking but in this article and video we share our experience, tips and useful links to ensure a fast, smooth border crossing as you drive your RV from the USA into Canada
We went into Old Town Florence yesterday to attend the annual Rods and Rhodies invitational car show. Over 150 cars Including the Copper Caddy from Velocity Channel’s Bitchin’ Rides and a set of cool American Graffiti tribute cars, including Toad’s Vespa, A beautiful 58 Chevy and John Milner’s yellow deuce coupe.
Hands down this very classy custom 38 Ford convertible was our favorite car.
This is a 49 Willys Wagon. Back in the 70’s, Merre and I had a nice 51, green and white but not nearly as nice as this one.
A cool 57 Buick with white leather and suicide doors
and more cars, cars and cars
This happens every year so if you’re on the coast of Oregon in early September, Florence is the place.
