    Video TR: Boondocking at 10,000 Feet

    Before heading out on our fulltime RV adventures, we wanted to return to one of our favorite spots close to home for one last camping excursion over the Memorial Day weekend. Located just to the southeast of the 2002 Winter Olympic venue of Park City, Utah, and 75 minutes from Salt Lake City, the Heber Mountain area of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest offers over 100,000 acres of prime RV boondocking at elevations of up to 10,000 feet.
  2. I headed out to explore Utah's West Desert this past weekend with my buddy Bob, and aside from a flat tire (!) we couldn't have been more pleased with the weekend. The West Desert comprises a lonely series of mountain ranges and extraordinarily flat valleys, stretching from the Wasatch Front to the Nevada border. It's home to such curiosities as the original Pony Express route, a herd of wild horses, and the military's Utah Test & Training Range. We found and filmed the herd, explored a preserved Pony Express station at Simpson Springs, and checked out the Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge. There's no shortage of camping opportunities out there on BLM land. We found a cozy spot nestled among the junipers at the foot of the Sheeprock Mountains. For those insisting upon a marked site, there's a small primitive BLM campground at Simpson Springs that offers pit toilets, water, fire rings and picnic tables. Here's our video from the weekend:
  3. If you're going to travel to the Salt Lake City/Park City area, one of our favorite go-to spots is the whole Heber Mountain/Duchesne Ridge area of Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, a spectacular 100,000-acre boondocking paradise. My latest video explores this wonderful area for those looking for prime camping near Salt Lake City.

    Video TR: Flaming Gorge (UT/WY)

    It's Wednesday morning, so it must be time for a new video! Flaming Gorge is a 42,000-acre recreation paradise spanning the Utah/Wyoming border. In the summer it's a hub of activity including not only world-class fishing and boating, but also swimming, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting and, of course, camping.Come explore Flaming Gorge with us on this Kitchen Table Trips episode of Grand Adventure! We'll find relaxing boondocking along the eastern shore, along with Forest Service campgrounds and even full-hookup RV parks as well. We'll visit nearby Brown's Park, one of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid's favorite hideouts, to see the John Jarvie Historic Ranch maintained by the BLM, and we'll also kayak through Horseshoe Canyon. We'll gaze down upon Flaming Gorge from Red Canyon, and view the engineering marvel that is the Flaming Gorge Dam. It's one of our favorite places to visit each year.

  6. At the end of November we made a quick stop in the Kanab area en route back to Salt Lake City from Lake Powell (http://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/130000-video-tr-lake-powell-antelope-canyon/).We boondocked right off Hancock Road north of town, which is a terrific spot on BLM land situated right in between Kanab, Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park and the east entrance to Zion National Park. Our campsite off Hancock RoadKanabCoral Pink Sand Dunes State ParkOur campsite was also right next door to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the nation's largest no-kill shelter that's not just for dogs and cats, but also horses and mules, small animals, reptiles and more. We lacked the time to take a complimentary tour of Best Friends, so we filmed our own self-guided tour through their facility in Angel Canyon. It's a spectacular and emotionally moving place, and I highly recommend a visit if you're in the Kanab area.Best Friends Animal SanctuaryBest Friends Animal SanctuaryBest Friends Animal SanctuaryThe whole Kanab stop is wrapped up in Episode 15 of Grand Adventure:

    Zion National Park (and boondocking nearby)

    DW, the dogs and I headed south the Saturday before Thanksgiving to boondock outside of Zion National Park.Arriving in Virgin, Utah right at dark, we first scouted Guacamole Mesa via Dalton Wash Road, but finding the last half mile to be steep and rough but nevertheless negotiable, but without cell service, we opted to check out North Creek area but that was pretty much full. In the end, we headed out onto Sheep Bridge Road in total darkness and nevertheless scored a stellar spot. Our camp on Sheep Bridge Road Report this image Our spot on Sheep Bridge RoadScouting around the region in the daytime, I would've preferred the place we found at Gooseberry Mesa, but I'll save that for another trip. The site we found on Gooseberry Mesa Although the scenery was spectacular, to be honest Zion National Park left me wanting. It was simply too crowded to enjoy, even in late November. Available parking was non-existent, and it was tough to even squeeze my pickup down Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. A series of unfortunate situations nixed my hiking plans, too. In the end I decided to push on to Lake Powell to celebrate Thanksgiving on the beach there, instead of fight what would assuredly be thicker crowds once the long holiday weekend arrived.Here's the video:
  8. Hello Re: Interested in the bit between and including Denver-Moab. I have no idea whats there. Please suggest routes and sights and hikes. First post (so pls tell if its in wrong place). I dont own an RV, I just hire. So apologies to butt into your forum, but in my experience RVers give me THE BEST advice This summer I need to visit a friend in Denver. Its fine for me to not start driving straight away cos I get jetlag (from UK), and so daytripping from Denver could suit me well to begin with. (Or I could go further afield if that really wouldnt work). So, I could use Denver as a base for up to a week (unless thats a bad idea). But Id also like to drive from there - possibly towards Moab area (where I had such a great time driving last summer). I like scenic drives, Im happy with remote spots, but I wont have an off-road vehicle for tougher routes; and I like lots of (easy and difficult) hiking opportunities. Last year I loved driving and hiking Zion to Moab to Monument Valley to Grand Canyon. En route I dipped into Colorado from Monticello, Utah, to visit the Mesa Verde CO ruins, so not keen to go back down to that part of CO. I was hoping someone here could suggest a route that begins with me flying to Denver. Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give. Mark

    Phoenix to Yellowstone and back

    We are off for the summer and fall, May to November, and plan to make our way to Yellowstone from Phoenix and back. We are in a 38' Alfa towing a Honda CRV. This is our first big trip since retiring and have no firm plans as to routes and places to visit and stay. I am looking for recommendations as well as insight into roads or places to avoid. We obviously will not be in a big hurry and are willing to stay for a month or longer in a location if it merits the time. Thanks
