In today’s video, we leave the Pony Express in Salt Lake City after a lovely anniversary meal out and start really heading south for the winter. We overnight at the Fillmore KOA before arriving at a boondocking spot in Virgin Utah outside of Zion National Park. We’re happy to be back in the desert which we both love and look forward to some more explorations in this area over the next week.
In today’s video, Steve shows you around the Pony Express Campground in Salt Lake City. He talks about the amenities and the culture shock involved in going from boondocking in the wilderness to an RV Resort next to a highway. Then Courtney gets home from her girls’ weekend in San Diego and shares some of her adventures too!
In today’s video, we leave the Wendover KOA and drive to Winnemucca NV where we spend one night at Walmart. Our first Walmart camping experience! It was the perfect stop over to get us to Truckee CA near Lake Tahoe the next day. We show you around our awesome first come camp spot and the small lake nearby. Next stop/video is Lake Tahoe!
In today’s video, we finally get everything sorted out with Clifford’s repairs and we get to leave Wendover Nevada but first, we check out the Bonneville Salt Flats. The Salt Flats were amazing beautiful…more so than we expected. If you are driving past we highly recommend you stop for a quick visit. Stay tuned as we get back to adventuring after this brief delay.
In today’s video, it’s moving day. We are leaving our amazing spot on Utah Lake and heading for 1 night on Antelope Island. Antelope Island is on the Great Salt Lake north of Salt Lake City. We knew we wanted to go check it out and since it was $10 to get in we decided to dry camp for one night instead for $20 total. The views from our campsite were beautiful but the no-see-ums were ridiculous. Poor Penny was eaten alive on day one and Steve has over 100 bites after day 2. We will come back to the island…just not in the spring during no-see-um hatching time.
In today’s video, we’re taking a day trip up into Salt Lake City and exploring Temple Square in downtown. This area is absolutely beautiful and worth a visit if you are in the area, especially in the spring when the tulips are blooming. The gardens here are fabulous and full of color this time of year and the grounds and buildings are immaculately kept. We even got to stay and hear an organ concert at the Tabernacle. A great day!
In today’s video, we are doing some exploring of the area around Utah Lake including hiking a waterfall (our third choice for a waterfall but it was still beautiful!). We also get a birds-eye view of our campsite at Miners Canyon from our hike up the hill. Lastly, we enjoy a night out for some Thai food which was special and delicious.
In today’s video, we show you around our new boondocking spot on Utah Lake south of Saratoga Springs. We also go explore another boondocking location on Stansbury Island and get through a long not so fun day of important errands. We decided we liked this spot so much we’d stay a whole week here but wait until you see the bugs. Luckily they don’t bite 🙂
In today’s video, we share our last couple days around Bryce Canyon. We hike some of the Fairyland Trail out to Tower Bridge, go hiking in Red Canyon to get up close and personal with the hoodoos and enjoy some delicious pie at the Bryce Canyon Pines before hitching up and heading out to our next destination… Utah Lake.
In today’s video, we decided to take a day trip to Kodachrome Basin State Park which was about 40 minutes from where we were boondocking outside of Bryce. Kodachrome was $8 for the day but we think it was worth it. We hiked a couple very pretty hikes including one with a large arch. Since we haven’t been to Arches yet this was a big deal to us! Our one thought on the park was we’d recommend seeing it before Bryce if possible. Bryce is so spectacular that comparisons are unfair and since we had hiked Bryce the day before it was fresh in our minds. Kodachrome is also beautiful just in a different way.
Also, there is absolutely 0 cell signal in the park or anywhere near it. So keep that in mind if you are planning to camp there.
