Great photos Jim thanks for sharing them with us.  I just can't imagine hanging there painting on the side of that rock.

Several nice things about the road trips in the Flaming Gorge Area and Vernal.  One: Each main trip is on a sheet with map and interesting places marked and described [Like the MilePost.]  Most are on excellent roads so the concentration is on the landscape not the next bump.  Each mile is different than the last one - each curve in the road is another breathtaking scene.  There are more challenging trails that lead off from the main routes for those who want to experiment.  And there are no people crowding any of the places.  Jim and I were alone on a tour of the Flaming George dam and power plant.  The roads are empty, the campgrounds empty - no crowding in the stores and ice cream parlors etc.

>> [I think I missed the discussion about Smoky and toweds!!!]<<

Smoky doesn't think he will drive & put many miles on his toad, he will take the motorhome to places & only use the toad to go to the market...Of course it seems his favorite places to visit are Walmarts & towns that he can walk to the attractions. Too bad as he will be missing a lot of beautiful country.

Hi Ken and Sheila;

Just got back to SV this morning.  Unloading the rig.  House in perfect shape.  We had some trip.  Toward the end the heat got too dangerous for the two of us to "back road" alone so we came back.  Hope to write of some of the places we have been [since Johnsons deserted us] and things we have seen.  Utah is truley an outstanding state.  This is the first on the forum since June 15th - just no connections except for quick bank downloads at some Best Westerns. 

Just as a warning to everyone - do not try to stay in an RV park in Price, Ut.  There is only one and bad voltage and five feet between rigs.

Fred,

Sounds like you had a great trip.  Glad you have arrived home safe and sound.  Thanks for the first hand report on the Price Ut campground.  Sounds like a good place to avoid.

Is that "RV Park" in Price the parking lot that's part of a motel?? With not even enough room to put out your awning without hitting the guy next to you?? If it is, we took one look at it and kept going to Green River, Utah, where it was 105 degrees but the spaces were shaded and spacious (although the park wasn't a PA park anymore). Of course, the power went out at 8 am but we were getting ready to leave anyway.

Wendycoke;  That was the RV park alright in Price.  Jammed with more or less permenent RV's most whom were on construction jobs or the place was cheap enought.  $90 a week with 50 amp power.

We stayed because we wanted to go to the Cleveland dinosaur dig.

We traveled that area a bit back in late summer of 1999 and found plenty of spectacular scenery and occasionally some interesting wildlife as well.   Nancy & I were by ourselves, so did not venture too far off the beaten track, but still saw a lot of rugged back country. 

Have always kept it in mind for a return visit some day. Maybe in 2006, since we plan to be "out West" next year.
