Might as well do some sightseeing along the way! We are headed to San Francisco eventually, but we are seeing as much as we can on the way. The third day of our trip, we toured Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. In a word – magnificent. There’s no sense touring other countries, until you’ve seen what’s here. The majority of the people we saw in the parks were from other countries, which I found fascinating. Zion had two tunnels cut through the rock, one was 1.1 mile long.
I don’t want to forget to tell you about planning this trip. I love to travel, if someone else will plan it. I’ve had a membership with AAA (American Automobile Association) for years. It wasn’t until this year that I had them plan my vacation. I can’t believe it took me so long. Krista at the Round Rock office did everything for me. I told her what I wanted to do, and she mapped the whole thing, and printed a book for us with turn by turn instructions, AND made all our hotel reservations. It’s well worth the membership. They actually can plan any type of vacation for you – driving, flying, cruising……. This will be a long and happy relationship for me.
You know, I have to include food on this post! Our last night in Kanab, we went back to the Rocking V Cafe for dinner. Life is to short to eat bad food! Our first trip we devoured a Trout dinner and a Pork Chop dinner, before we remembered we had the camera, but we had more restraint the second night! Don’s (pastured) pork chop was so good, I ordered it the second night. Don had deep dish enchiladas with chicken. We also had shrimp with ancho sauce and potato, broccoli rabe, Gorgonzola soup.
Our forth day was a long drive through Nevada, to get to Carson City. It was about 10 hours of pretty desolate, awful scenery – kind of West Texas awful, but with a few ugly brown hills! Lake Tahoe will be our next stop, so that will make up for what we endured.
