My husband wanted to drive a loop in California to forest campgrounds. The loop starts at I80 and road 20. We got on 20 and saw a campground so we went to check it out. The road was narrow and twisty and turned with trees so close to the road it made it hard to drive with the motorhome. Tree limbs were scraping down the side. We slowly got thru it and left. All the campsites were un level or taken.
We went further and saw White Cloud campground. We found a nice camp site. It was level and huge. We stayed the night there. The only thing to do is build a campfire. There is no power. So we had a nice campfire.
We drove the next day looking for campgrounds but they were all awful, small, un-level. We just drove home.
I was driving home from dinner and sky turned beautiful.
I took this one last month.
I am not going to put my places on my trip in order. I have been to so many beautiful places this summer. This is one of them. Sinks Canyon State Park features a geologic phenomenon in which the Popo Agie River vanishes into a large cavern (the Sinks) but reappears in a trout- filled pool, the Rise, about half a mile down the canyon. These trout live a leisurely life, with no fishing allowed.
We were on our way to Yellowstone and stopped at Sink Canyon state park for the night.
We went to the last campground which is in the National forest area. It was right beside a river and no one was around. I like those campgrounds.
The river was right beside us.
We had a nice campfire.
I didn’t see any bears. (See bear box in picture.)
This is the river going into a cave.
My son walked in the cave, they have a trail to it. I didn’t go.
I took a picture of the beautiful sunrise.
This is what I saw when I woke up.
We started driving to Las Vegas to spend the night at Circus Circus RV. It was so hot. On the way there traffic was stopped for 30 minutes for road work. The temp for the outside temperature said
So this guy gets out of his car and gets a selfie stick and takes pictures. I guess he thought it was picture time. There was bugs on the windshield of my RV.
So we get to Las Vegas and it was hot. We went into Circus Circus and ate at the buffet. It was so crowded. They have rides in the casino and we walked around and my son bought a t-shirt that lights up to sound. It was $35. I later looked them up on the internet. Here is a link. They are cheaper than the casino. The motorhome took forever to cool down. The power went out about 5 am. It was getting hot then. All the power was out in the RV park. We then drove to Zion National Park in Utah. It was 100 degrees there.
You have to ride a shuttle to see the park. The park was crowded and the bus was not air conditioned. The windows just open a little bit. (I guess so you can’t jump out.) I just rode the bus and took this picture. It was too hot to hike for me. I did get a Zion t-shirt. I used to go to Zion all the time and I have hiked every trail there when I was younger. I even went down the river on an inter-tube but they don’t allow that anymore. It used to be better, you could drive it and there was no shuttle.
The mountains are really pretty there. Just go when it is cooler.
We just got back from a vacation. We went to several National parks. Some of them you have to ride their bus to see the park. The bus is hot. I stuck my water bottle In my pocket. I checked to gift shops but their little water bottle holders were $14. I got home and bought a small backpack for $4. I drew a boot on it and painted it with paint and puff paint too. I also drew a water bottle and put rhinestones on it for sparkle. Now I can put my water bottle in it and my camera. I walk little trails to take pictures.
This is the Delicate arch at Arches National park.
The Weekly photo challenge is Vivid. My roses are blooming vivid red. I took a couple of pictures of them.
The melting snow on top of this mountain looks like a face looking up the sky. Do you see it?
