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.

Great road trip but no license plate

01 Mike at LeFevre overlook SR89A AZ (735x1024)

At least not for me. But Mike got his new to him Jeep licensed in Colorado City.

02 GSES while dropping off Kaibab Plateau SR89A N AZ (1024x768)

Dropping off the Kaibab Plateau with views of the Grand Staircase Escalante.

03 Old house SR389 W AZ (1024x766)

Evidence of somebody’s dream.

04 JB's why I love chocolate sign Hurricane UT (1024x754)

At breakfast this sign says it all.

05 Stormy sky to the S from SR389 E AZ (1024x757)

It was about 94 degrees in Saint George, Utah. And I’ll have to go back in a couple weeks to get a 5th-wheel hitch mounted in the truck.

06 Rain falling on the Vermilion Cliffs from SR89A N Kaibab NF AZ (1024x743)

Although we watched the stormy sky all the way home we barely got a few rain drops.

07 Clearing yet stormy sky over the meadows SR67 S Kaibab NF AZ (1024x768)

Someone asked about the first image of standing dead trees in my SWF post. In 2006 lightning struck near Jacob Lake starting the Warm Fire which ultimately burned almost 60,000 acres. Now I see aspens taller than I am.

When I was working at Cedar Breaks, someone once asked me where is the best place to see Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument - I told them to drive to Jacob's Lake, turn around, and drive back down the plateau. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest views anywhere in the world.

When you go on a road trip, you really go on a road trip. Sounds like even when you have stormy slies like that, its still hot.
