Be aware July 24 is Pioneer Day in Utah and RV parks can be crowed.

Did you buy the RV there or are you renting it?

I purchased my RV in Florida about 3 years ago. I live in Hawaii now and spend about 6 months traveling during the summer. I end up leaving it where ever my wife makes me come home. Hopefully I can find another indoor storage in the upper Northwest or maybe down a Florida. But I wanna spend a lot of time in Utah, Colorado and northwest this year. I'm playing with the notion of making a mad - to Florida in October to put it in storage but that still up in the air.

If you'll be traveling between Capitol Reef National Park and Canyonlands National Park, consider going a bit out of the way to visit Goblin Valley State Park. The rock formations are incredibly unusual, highly entertaining and downright fun to wander among.

Enjoy your travels!

Living here in Utah I have my favorites.


1 zion is our favorite of the big 5. We stay about 15 miles from the gate in SpringDale. The virgin river RV resort in Virgin Utah. Its away from the busy of the park entrance. Lots to do in and out of the park specially in hiking trails. Hiking the narrows a must do.


2. Moab. The arches are a must see. You can spend several days in the arches part of Moab alone.


Consider a quick detour to Durango, CO from here. Take the Silverton -- Durango train trip.



Bewarn that both parks can be very hot in the summer.


3. Bryce is also very nice we stay at ruby inn. This park is not over stayed as the other 2 can be. Lots of good hiking and sights to take in.





Have fun.
