Again, great shots. If I had to hazard a guess from the photos I would say that the town is a "re-creation". Very well done, though.

Thanks for posting such great pictures. I really want to make that trip too. I'm glad you posted how much we'll be needing the furnace in October. Hopefully someday we'll make it . . .

Love the ice-cream story. Our vehicle always seems to pull us towards ice-cream stands! Good to know where the deals will be!

Saturday.

Hi, this morning we left Bryce Canyon. I forgot to mention that we stayed at Ruby's Camp Ground. It is a real nice place, everyone is very friendly, and all sites are unlevel. I have never been to a place that required me to level my trailer from side to side. The camp store was out of leveling blocks and so was the General Store. I guess a lot of people needed blocks for the first time like me. Now what do I do? The lady in the store called somee guy in and asked if he could help me. I followed him to a container that was used for storage. He found two wooden signs that I could use, but I have to return them when I leave. Well the two boards that were about 12" X 18" X 1" weren't enough to get me level so I put one piece of fire wood under one end of the boards and backed onto them. Not perfect, like I would like, but acceptable.

Hi, we are at Quality Inn / Zion Canyon Campground / RV Resort. I just typed a whole page and got kicked out of WIFI again. I forgot to mention that we stayed at Ruby's Campground in Bryce Canyon. Zion wasn't very far away; Short drive for me. We got in for free again with my senior pass but I had to pay $15.00 to drive an over sized vehicle though a tunnel. The first tunnel is free, but the second tunnel is the one you have to pay for. They stop all traffic in the opposite direction, then give me the go-ahead, with instructions to drive smack dab in the middle of the tunnel. [taking both lanes, in both directions]

Hi, Zion is quite a bit warmer than Bryce. It was about 84 degrees here when we got here. We took a drive up to a lake, no signs telling how high we were, but there was a 20 degree drop in temperature. [64 degrees] When we got here we turned on the air conditioner; Now I have one roof vent open, no A/C, and no furnace. At almost 11:00 PM tonight my trailer is a perfect 72 degrees inside. No furnace tonight. In the first picture, this is what it looked like when we first got here. In the second picture this is what it looked like as the Sun was setting. [notice where my Lincoln is parked] In the last two pictures you might be able to see that my trailer takes up the whole space, from street to street. I had to block the street completely to unhitch. Right now it is 66 degrees outside and 73 degrees inside; I had to close my vent because the wind is starting to blow.

Zion Canyon.

Hi today we went hiking. They now have buses to take you from anywhere in town, to the park for free. Then you entert the park and they have buses that take you to all the sights for free. One of the drivers said something like, "One year there were 3,000 parking spaces and over 4'000 vehicles in the park;" This doesn't work, but the buses are great.

Hi, Wifi has almost stopped again and won't let me post any pictures. We did quite a bit of hiking today and the paths that we took weren't too scary. Most of the paths were paved, but not all, and some were very steep. I took a few pictures of some mountain climbers and in the pictures they are so small that you can barely make them out. The bus driver said that these climbs take about a day and a half to do. It is raining now; we had our vents open and heard what sounded like sprinkles and the next thing I know, my Fantastic Vent started to close by it'self. The rain sensor actually works.

Naked man!

Hi, this morning while we were having coffee, my wife was getting a refill, as she was looking out the kitchen window, she said "naked man, there is a naked man out there". A man was coming out from bathhouse and he dropped his towel. By time I got to the window he had already put his towel back on. But I could see about a dozen other campers watching and laughing as the naked man returned to his camper. I told Lee that I was going to watch out for a naked woman, but no such luck.

Hi, Vinnie. Today is our last day in Zion; We decided to stay one extra night. Tomorrow we stop off in Vegas and spend all of the rocks we collected.

Hi, the first picture is this morning's view from the camp ground facing the street. The second picture is another huge rock/mountain. The third was a shocker; I guess we were on the Bunny Trail. I believe these stupid/brave girls went all the way to the top. In the forth picture, I"m showing on the map, about how far we went. According to the recorded messages on the bus, near the half way mark there is a very narrow pathway that is about 3' wide, no rails, a drop off of 900 feet on one side and 1200 feet on the other. Needless to say I wasn't going that far.

Hi, in the first picture is a looking back down on one of the pathways that we hiked on yesterday. In the second picture, we found a friend, or he found us; On this trail, we made it to the end. Not a real hard one. In the third picture, I'm either getting braver or am about to lose my mind. Glad I didn't lose my step. Do you want to see crazy? Do you? Well look very closely at the forth picture; This is only a very small section of the mountain and there is a rope hanging from it; And there is a mountain climber on the rope. We watched a few of them yesterday and one today.
