This morning we decided to take a “short cut,” up and over a mountain instead of going around the mountain. After all, we do have a jeep and we left the bee at the dispersed camping site. I’d say about 10 minutes into it, the road turned to dirt and became very winding with huge elevation jumps. We were so high up that the potato chip bag exploded!!
I could not believe how many people were there!! I’m so happy that I was able to see this park years ago before all the over crowding. We stayed for a short time and had to get away from all those people!!
After our hike, we headed back to The town of Beaver, had some tacos at the gas station and headed back to our dispersed camping spot.
Our next destination was Cedar City. We decided to drive on another scenic byway, this time pulling the camper to a campground in the Dixie National Forest.
We found an amazing site all to ourselves at the Duck Creek Campground.
In the morning, we decided to do some more exploring. We drove to the town of Kanab, Utah and went to the Best Friend Animal Sanctuary. A high school friend, Jackie, recommended it and it was great. Not just what they are doing. To save animals but the location itself was breathtaking.
So all in all, today was a super busy day. It’s currently raining so it’s a perfect time for me to sit in the tear drop and Blog Away! Plus a chance to look at the maps and see what tomorrow brings. I really love this part of the country!
