2024 Canyonlands National Park

While still in Moab, Utah (May 2 to May 8, 2024), we did another off-road trail in a county park. The trail is called Fins and Things. It’s pretty famous in the Moab area for testing 4×4 skills for which it stood up to its reputation. Since we still had the afternoon after the ride, […]

2024 Arches National Park

The last part of our adventure before heading north to Canada, was Moab, Utah. The first place we wanted to see was Arches National Park. Without a timed entry pass, people can enter the park before 7:00am. So, we got there by 5:45am. The view was stunning with the sun rising behind the landscape. On […]

2024 Zion National Park

While traveling through Arizona and into Utah, we have seen a lot of deserts. I keep finding myself singing the song “A horse with no name”.

2024 Prada Marfa and Gila Bend

As we were leaving Big Bend to continue west on highway 67, we came across a TARS (Tethered Aerostat Radar System) site and was able to get a picture of the unmanned blimp that’s used to monitor the US border with Mexico. Once we got to the town of Marfa, we turned on highway 90 […]

2024 Big Bend National Park… Again

Now that Jeff has his Jeep, our next stop was back to Big Bend National Park. Shortly after entering the park, we came across a coyote. We stayed in the park at the Rio Grande Village, as we did in 2023. It’s only a parking lot, but that’s ok because it has full hookups. Wild […]
