Is it Knee-fi or Neffy?
Utah is a beautiful state. It’s not very far into the state from Arizona that the landscape starts changing. The changes keep coming. First it is different types of rock formations and then it starts to get green and we start a very long and gradual climb in elevation that lasted for two full days.
Still undecided on whether to turn towards home because Wanda was very concerned about her baby, Licky. We continued north through Utah knowing it was still only taking us further in the direction we would head if we turned toward Oregon. We decided we would stop for the night at an RV park in Nephi.
Some nights we choose to stay in a park. Usually we’ll do that if we need to have full hookups so we can do laundry and stay in surroundings more pleasing than a parking lot.
We have an app that shows us all the RV Parks, County, City, State and National Campgrounds as well as businesses that offer overnight parking, rest stops and more. The app helps decided how far we’ll go for a days travel and pick out a spot to stay the night. We had decided on Nephi and picked a park there.
We exited the freeway and drove to the park and decided it was junky. There was a billboard for another park that I had rejected because it was further off the highway. Turns out it was the best park we had stayed in to this point of the trip. It was beautiful, remote, had a small river running along it’s border and with a creek running through it. There were only 3 other RV’s in the park. Being further away from the highway (5 miles) it was very quiet and peaceful.
We liked it so much we considered staying another day just so we could soak it up. I wouldn’t mind staying here for a week or more.
Travelling through Utah it seems like every direction you look there are snow capped mountains. The air is clean and clear and we would like to go back again and spend some time there. We had a date definite by which we had to be in Iowa and were still unsure if we would be turning towards home, so it wasn’t happening this trip.
Shortly after leaving this great spot we came upon a place we just had to pull off. We always have fun and good times when we are with the Stoner girls and here was a town that we know would have been a lot more fun to explore with them. We haven’t come across any towns named Kim or Michele, yet.
Not far past Mona we had a planned stop at Costco. Time to load up on Diet Coke and Water. From there it was on through Orem and Provo to Salt Lake City where it would be ultimate decision time. Would we go on to Iowa or head home.
