On to Idaho and Utah

100_7950We spent a week in Jackson Hole/Grand Tetons and then were on our way.  Our destination was the Salt Lake City, Utah area.  It was going to be a it over 300 miles, somewhat beyond our 200 to 250 miles per day max.  So we spent a night in an RV park in Idaho, behind an Indian Casino.  It was a very easy in/out site where we didn’t have to unhook the car and it made for two easy days of travel rather than one longer one.  There were no table games at this casino so the poker pro did not get the chance to refresh his “skills”.  Our route out of Jackson followed the Snake River which kept up out of mountain passes.  We had very pretty views of the river all along our route.  And we saw many a potato field in Idaho and some lava flows as well..

100_7969The second day we arrived at our RV Park in Kaysville, Utah.  We will spend two full weeks here.  We need a little down time from our recent travels and  to spend long enough in one spot to have our mail forwarded, do a little cleaning and maintenance, and access some of the stores and activities a larger city offers.


  1. Its sometimes hard to find the balance between sightseeing and having the down time of a "normal" life. The area of the country you are in is one of the hard places to slow down. There is SO MUCH to see and do, its hard to just blow off a day or so, but then you just get exhausted. Newfoundland is like that to an extent. with a finite period of time here we want to see as much as possible, but we still need those "catch up" days!

  2. I really enjoy following your adventures! Thanks for keeping up the posting. Our daughter lives in Clearfield, so I spent some time there last September. GREAT place to eat (been on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) The Red Iquana. The downtown location is the original - but getting around on the fast train is the way to move around IF you don't want to drive. LOTS to see and do there. Enjoy!
