The Sunday Blast from the Past

After I left Page, AZ, in May of 2008, I headed for Zion National Park in Utah. I camped at a Passport America Park about 40 miles from the Visitor's Center. I didn't want to camp inside the park since there is a one mile long tunnel that I didn't want to drive the rig through. With a rig the size of mine, it would have taken a special escort through the tunnel (with an appropriate fee). The drive into the park was interesting enough just with the car!
Once you are at the visitor's center, further travel in the park must be done by shuttle bus. I got there early in the morning and took the shuttle out to the ranch area near the Virgin River.

You will spend most of your time in Zion looking up at the magnificent mesas.

The views are astounding.

The second day I was there, I took a ranger led bus tour that was very informative about invasive species (plants) and the geology of the area. The tour began at 9:00, so I had to get up quite early to make the one hour drive there in time to find a parking space at the visitor's center.

That was the day I decided to live on the wild side....and not make my bed before I left. ;) It was the first time in about thirty years that I hadn't made my bed. I guess it's just the freedom of the road that took over my sensibilities that morning...LOL.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
