Uh-oh! Do I sense possible meetings in a really nifty place?

A great find. Thanks for sharing. Might just have to stop there one day.

Please let us know when! The roads in from I81 are pretty awesome until the last couple of miles. It's a bit windy and twisty, but several 44' tag axles were comfortably parked.

Clean dump station, older but clean bathrooms, and full grass on every site. Most are shady and all are back-ins, but if no one is in the site you back up to, it's a pull-through! Click image for larger version

Sounds good. We may not get to the almost "Right" coast for a while.

Today's trip to Cedar Breaks was a grand decision. It was a nice drive and a beautiful place. It was overcast and cloudy so we did the best we could with pics... but it was beautiful whether we captured it well or not. Here are a few...

The place has views similar to the Badlands, Yellowstone, etc.
The temp at 10+k feet was 51 degrees.

Beautiful views.

I am in Indianapolis while the Pace Arrow is in Decatur, as they repair my broken water line. Paying for that will prevent a Bryce trip, so post lots of photos for those of us who can't be there...

My empty driveway looks funny...

BTW - never seen so many sheep. The dog, the man, and the horse were a great team. Possibly mutants.
