The state of Utah is home to lots of beautiful National Parks, and Bryce Canyon National Park ranks as one of the three most magnificent and awe inspiring.
First, Bryce Canyon isn’t a canyon, it’s the spectacular edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, a place where intricately carved towers and archways of stone shimmer in a dazzling array of color under the bright sun.
The rock in Bryce Canyon is composed of layer after layer of sedimentary deposits, deposited millions of years ago, when the area was at the bottom of a lake. …
The Grand Canyon State, is a unique place; the weather in AZ is so warm, that one could wear shorts all year around. In fact, I do!
This is because I live in the AZ desert. Arizona has many, many diverse areas that have different environmental landscapes. The northern part of Arizona, right around the Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, gets more rainm and is considerably cooler than the southern region of the state. On the west side of the state, are the lower deserts and the Colorado river, it’s warm. Yuma, Lake …
When looking for a desert expedition and trekking ranges with a beautiful view, the western state of Utah is the way to go. Treading the busy roads and bus stops you are bound to be astounded by the inherited landscape and arid deserts and sand dunes. A multitude of Rocky Mountains and creek reservoir makes it the ultimate adventure for all the travel folks visiting this pleasant state of America. Utah has quite the reputation for attracting adventure thirsty travellers to try its explorative quests.
I landed in Cal Nev Ari, between Vegas and Laughlin. It snowed all day New Year’s Eve, but sunny and melting on New Year’s day. Didn’t want to boondock at the lake or in a casino parking lot in a below freezing snow storm. It’s nice here, Toto gets to run!
First time this has happened! He nevers likes it when I leave him alone, but he never freaked out before. He has barking and scratching at the windows. Maybe it was because we had just arrived there, and he was still acclimating, but I had to go into the casino to check in without him.
I’m using the Thousand Trails Zone Camping Pass I got over the summer in Tahoe. This is a very nice park, super nice staff, secure and pleasant, neighbors OK. I guess compared to some cities, Vegas is nice, but it does have a pretty wide grunge zone, and I would prefer to be out in the boonies, or a nice small town.
I stayed at an RV park, but this Walmart on the east side of Boulder Highway, across from Sam’s Town, seems OK for overnight parking. I wouldn’t stay for more than a night. FYI, the Walmart on the downtown stretch of Boulder Highway is potentially dangerous. The far east and far west sides of Las Vegas are the safest areas.
Doing a few video clips of inside the caves at Cathedral Gorge, Nevada State Park, as well as some video of the dramatic hills. Trying to use a tripod and motorized pan head inside those narrow caves was pretty much not work, resorted to hand panning.
I must have missed the email saying Millenicom was cancelling all the accounts because Verizon did not want to work with 3rd parties. It worked out, Verizon was having a sale on GBs, so I have 30 GBs for $40 more. Echo Canyon is beautiful, you could do some exploring here! Spring Valley campground is also about 10 miles away, but has no cell or wifi at all.
