Catching up.... Kodachrome Basin State Park

This was not on my list of places to visit. As it turns out, Jeanne made a good choice. I'm not a geologist, not a rock hound, but this was a great stop. The campground is five star....no radio, no TV, no internet. However, we did happen on to one little spot that gave us 2 bars of ATT, just to check email.

There are some nice hikes, great views, and fantastic night skies if you get away from the campground. An added bonus was Willis Creek Slot canyon, located outside the park. I just posted photos to my Instagram.....see below.

Note: there were five Airsteams in the campground, all independent. On one of our walks, we waved but it was one of those responses..."leave me alone" I had to laugh, as I recently read a thread on here about Airstream Etiquette. We seem to see more of this on our travels. I'm sure if Jake had been with us, the ice would have been immediately broken.

Future Planning ----- Monument Valley

We are currently in Kanab, UT. We head to the North Rim of GC tomorrow for a couple days.

We are planning on a four day stay in MV.....looking for suggestions on where to stay. Also, any tours. I'm not much for tours, but seems that is the only way to really get into MV except for the one road. If there are any other must see/do things, please let me know.

After MV we go to Canyon de Chelly, then into New Mexico.

Thanks in advance.

We've been at Kanab for four days, we leave tomorrow. Just posted some pics of our hike yesterday into Wire Pass slot canyon and our dirt road drive to a terrific view point of Grand Staircase Escalante. Just click the Instagram link below.

Silver Eagle, I will miss following you on your adventure. That is the best I can do this year. Our beautiful 30' FC will have to remain in storage, as the wife is dealing with the big C this summer. We are hopeful this will be dealt with by Christman and we can get on the road south this winter. We bought a new silver F250 for our 50th wedding anniversary and it sits barely used in the garage. There are probably others who have been vicariously riding along with you. Thanks so much. Happy trails!

Richard

We will miss your travelogue but look forward to seeing more photographs in the future. We hope to cross paths again someday.

And of course... we wish you CAVU on all your travels.

Yes..."ceiling and visibility unlimited." I was watching documentaries on modern day presidents (since Kennedy) on PBS and saw that George H. W. Bush had a plaque made and attached to his hometown house: CAVU. I figured with Jeanne and John being veterans, they would know. And with this being a good opportunity to talk behind their backs, I can say we enjoyed meeting them and hope to hang out with them again down the road. I'm grateful for their service and can say they're a heckuva couple.
