Twenty days, seven national parks, two national monuments, one national recreation area, one state park, one memorial and six thousand miles later, it’s hard to believe how much we did during our first long camping trip in the RV we bought in January.
Starting with snow in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Then blue skies in Grand Tetons National Park.
Still cold but beautiful in Yellowstone National Park.
Maybe the most enjoyable stay at Capitol Reef National Park.
And a crowd free National Bridges National Monument.
Even the drives were pretty amazing, like the day spent traveling through Glen Canyon Recreation Area and Bears Ears National Monument.
Utah’s Dead Horse Point State Park provided views similar to those found at the Grand Canyon.
And less than five miles away, we spent the afternoon at Canyonlands National Park.
Our final Park in Utah, Arches National Park.
Then on to Mesa Verde National Park, the home of the Anasazi.
Finally, we enjoyed the solitude of the Oklahoma City Memorial.
I’m pleased to say the RV passed the test, and while watching the CBS Morning Show today which highlighted Mount Rainier National Park, John looked at me and said, “We can pack in a couple hours.”
