The weather was wonderful for February. Not alot of people yet but come Spring the park fills up fast on the week ends. I forgot my camera so no pix's to share
We're heading out to Zion and Bryce for Easter week so I'll post some photos when we get back. We're taking our new rescue Rough Coat Collie Conner with us; it will be his first camping trip and now that Jack is 14 he's staying home with family.

Michael, congrats on your new dog. One hardest things I ever had to do was retire my 14 1/2 yr. old Golden (Shane) from the horse pack trips I used to guide. Even tougher was saying that last goodbye. I hope yours is a ways off.
Thanks for sharing the pictures from your property in Keller - I've never been over there. You can't beat that view can you? When we were up in Lone Pine in November we saw a 16'
like yours in storage in back of the rv park there - it wasn't yours was it?
You also mentioned going to Zion over Easter break. We were up there two years ago the last week of March and I was shocked at how crowded it was compared to years past. I remember 20 years ago going up there the middle of April and having the place to myself! Those days are over.....sadly.
On that trip two years ago we camped in Snow Canyon SP just outside St George one night, where there were some nice little hikes and scenic vistas.
We took two weeks on our trip which went by quickly. We also went on to Bryce, which was less crowded. From there on to Scenic 12 through the Escalante Staircase National Monument. This is one of our favorite places anywhere and the drive is spectacular. Great camping and hiking and just plain relaxing. We hated to leave there but we wanted to at least get to Capitol Reef before heading home. CR is another great place to hike and explore.
I don't know how much time you have or if you've been to these places? But if you want more info let me know or PM me.
Have fun with Conner... Utah has always been pretty dog friendly.
