Traveling Through Utah


Left a little after seven this morning…bound for Durango, Colorado. Gorgeous start to the day, although a little on the chilly side. We drove  340 miles today…about half way to Durango. Just before we got to Provo, Utah we drove by a lake that was really pretty and had tons of boaters and skiers taking advantage of the terrific weather. We pulled off the road, at a pull-off area, to stretch and relax for a bit before driving some more.There were two wind surfers on the lake that were fun to watch. The one guy dumped his sail (not sure hat the technical term is for losing the wind in one’s sail) and had to wait till the wind hit it just right to pick it up again. Was certainly interesting to watch…I can’t imagine how much upper body strength it must take to do this.


While we were stopped, I checked RV Park Reviews for a park that would be on our route. It seems there is a problem with mosquitoes in this area. Several parks that I pulled up, had reports of being attacked by mosquitoes the minute they got out of the truck. Found a good review, on the park where P8090021we're staying, with no mention of mosquitoes. We’re just off Interstate 15..exit 261 at East Bay RV Park. Nice park…very clean and neat, with a great backdrop of the mountains. When we got to our site, a contractor was making his rounds and was spraying for mosquitoes….THAT’s why this park isn’t having a problem with them ! This park offers a Good Sam discount…total cost was $30.P8090022 Pretty scenery coming down through the hilly country, into Provo. Went by Bridal Veil Falls, which was really great…cascading down the side of the mountain. Provo isn’t as big as I imagined it would be. Drove by Brigham Young University’s stadium and the outer portion of their campus. When I was at Penn College, there were several active members in a group called NACUFS (National Assoc of College University Food Services) that were from BYU. Pretty town….can now say we’ve been through Provo. Tomorrow we’ll arrive in Durango….
