Hi all, I am currently at the Burger King in Beaver Utah for brekkie and wifi...mostly coffee and gas....lol
I spent the night before that in a little bowl up against some cliffs
underneath a gorgeous Pinon pine tree that looked like a Bonsai
plant...stunning! And free....it was just west of Capital Reef National
Park where the CG was full....hah, their loss, our gain!
Then yesterday the ride over Utah Hwy 12 which may be in the top five
best rides in America in my opinion. Found a sweet little place called
the Burr Trail Trading post where the locals were conducting a tiny
little Farmer's Market and I got the most amazing loaf of fresh baked
whole wheat bread! Got some good coffee there as well.
My destination for last night was the Beaver Canyon CG in Beaver,
UT...yep, no lie!) and Maria's Cocina...where the CG owner's wife cooks
some very excellent Mexican food for dinner every day....pork Chimi for
me....cheap at $12 for one old phart on a bike. And a nice evening and
camp on grass with a great shower and dog walking area...
I will have to wait to put up photos as they are on my phone and camera
and it is a pain when I have only a few minutes of wifi....
Today hoping to be well into Nevada and on highway 50...a long and lonely
stretch of road...one of the originals though...will upload a pic of
that...the rest are on my camera so will put them on my blog when I have
I am going to put in a plug for Utah...a state you don't see talked
about on here or on vandwellers forum and I don't know why....there are
thousands of acres of free camping and dirt roads to explore and the red
rock and sandstone cliffs are mindboggling...
Do yourself a favor and come and enjoy them. If you are mobile enough
to. If you are living in a vehicle to live really cheaply of course you
won't move it much but, if like me, you live in one to travel and see
the country, and I know seveeral of you are...don't pass up Utah....they
even sell good coffee these days...lol
