Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

MWT - “Can we swim at Jacob Lake?”

Jacob Lake is not for swimming but the historic Ranger Station certainly is worth exploring...

I would be happy in that Ranger station it looks like it could be very warm and cosy. Diane

Oh what a wonderful history you share here, Gaelyn. I love the look of that cottage/office. To answer your question about driving: In North and West Africa we drive on the right side of the road (same as you) with left hand drive vehicles. In South Africa, as you know, it's right hand drive and you drive on the left. Have a wonderful two days away. (((hugs))) Jo

Oh, Bryce--you do get around the Southwest, don't you? H of a place to lose a cow. Love the history.

I remember being very disappointed with Jacob Lake as a lad, about 40 years ago. Not much has changed.

Cozy indeed! Very nice. I wouldn't mind a stay there as well.

Jacob Lake looks so picturesque even without water. I like the little old ranger station. Enjoy Bryce Canyon, can't wait to see pics!

Absolutely love the old ranger station. Proof positive that all the modern trappings are not a necessity of life. The less you have, the less you have to maintain and guard against damage of theft.

Give me the old days anytime, all this rushing about is not at all up my alley.

Nice photos.

I bet lots of people can't understand why its called a lake if (by the end of summer) there is no lake.

I love it when places like this cottage is kept as museums or exhibits on the past.

I guess if I can swim in the river with the hippos, this would not be too bad. LOL!!

Can I move into that cabin? I promise I will take care of it. :)

So who was Jacob?
It is a very pretty area and the horses are enjoying the green stuff.
I too could move right into that cabin. I lived in a smaller cabin but similar one year in Republic, Wa. Enjoyed my time there.

Maybe they thought Mother Nature would provide a nice in-ground pool....

I love the ranger cabin. It looks very cozy. It's very nice that they have set it up so you can see what how the rangers lived.

The ranger station looks like my kind of place, too.

That cabin looks perfect. I can do without electricity and plumbing but does it have internet? ;-)
