WELCOME, also, to two followers who didn't have photos, and I just found them at the beginning section of my follower list: smdrm and Carrie Jordan. I don't have any information about either of you, but I'm happy you are following along on our adventures. Welcome aboard to you both, too! :)
We ended up this afternoon at a State Park here in Provo, Utah called Utah Lake RV Park. Utah Lake is the largest fresh water lake in Utah, and has fishing, boating, and camping. This RV park isn't the prettiest I've been in, but it's not bad, and the setting and surrounding areas are gorgeous. Our site:
This is the view from my window over the couch:
There is a path close to our site that leads to the Utah Lake parking area, and then the lake. Here's the path:
Katie and I walked over to check out the lake around 5:00 pm, and we didn't get back to The Palms until 7:00. There are lots of places to walk, there's a boat ramp, and we walked past it along the lake. There is a berm (?) around a large area that separates a couple of areas of the lake, and we walked along that berm. (I don't know if that's what it's called, but you get the idea.)
The sun was starting to go down when we started out, and we walked until it was almost down. I took a ton of photos.
This is the same shot that I took from my window, but after we got back from our walk as it was getting dark:
And finally, as I was closing my shades, I looked out the window and there was a beautiful full moon coming up over the mountain:
To get the full effect, click on the photos and you 'll see the details more clearly. What a beautiful spot this is. We're staying here at least five days, and then we'll see.
I've made reservations at Zion National Park for ten days at the end of October/beginning of November. I'd rather not make reservations, but those are the first dates I could get a site for more than one day, and I really want to stay there. I want at least a week, and October 29th was the first available date. There may be more sites available as first come, first served non-reservable sites, but I'm not sure about that and I didn't want to take a chance.
So, we may stay here longer than the five days I've paid for, or find another park on the way to Zion. The price here is $20 per night, and at Zion it's $9 per night with my Senior Card. Good deal!
From Me and My Dog, have a great Wednesday night, everyone! :)
