My husband and I took our first three
week trip in our TT to see the Grand
Canyon. It was awesome. Everyone
should see it at least once.

We stayed in a campground called
the Voyager in Tuscon, AZ on our
way to the Canyon. This campground
is really big and very very nice.

We love the small town called
Sedona. It was beautiful also
and a very busy little place.

We got to the Grand Canyon too
late to get the campground with
hookups. The temp got down to
29 and our heater worked all
night until it ran the battery
down and we froze until my
husband got up and turned the
pickup on and recharged the battery.

We then headed to Salt Lake City
and we liked the town called Page
near Lake Powell.

We stayed at a campground in a
small town called Knab,UT and this
was a very pretty town also.
The campground was Crazy Horse and
the new owner is slowly fixing the
place up.

We camped at the KOA in Salt Lake
and it was a very nice place.

We watched our daughter run in the
Salt Lake Marathon. Can't beleive
that anyone can run for 26 miles
without stopping. Our daughter
finished in 4 hrs. There were
runners in their 60's and 70's.
Boy, did this make me feel
out of shape and lazy!!

We stayed in Utah for a week.
We headed home to Texas by way
of Moab. This is also a pretty
town and the Arches National Park
is awesome. We camped here at
Slip Rock and it was nice but
only dirt to put the RV on.

Then we pushed on to South Fork
CO. were my husband has an Aunt
and cousin. That is a pretty
drive through Wolf Creek Pass.

It was a little scarry to me
climbing up to 8,500ft. with
a trailer behind us. This was
our first time to tow in the
mountains any higher than
the hill country of Texas!!

South Fork is a lovely small
town. The campground there
was very nice also and it was
right on the Rio Grand river.

Then on to Roswell, NM for one
night to visit relatives and
the next day home to Kerrville.

No problems with the truck or
the trailer. We were thrilled.

Hope this was not too long a
travel log.

Billie and Vernon

Thank you for sharing with us your vacation. Already I am chomping at the bit to get a few days off and take my fiver somewhere. I think my boss would get unhappy if I called in sick from my cell phone just to get a few days off.
