We left Tuesday morning and went to the Virgin River Canyon Campground which is halfway between Mesquite, NV and St. George, UT. The scenery is very beautiful plus we had a chance to visit some friends whom we hadn't seen for quite a long time. It was a great chance to catch up on what has been happening. On Thursday we hit the road and were home by noon Saturday. Believe me, there was no time to waste for the driver. Once he got behind the wheel, there was no stopping him. But we never drove before sunrise or sunset but just a steady pace.
This is our view from the Campground. This view was similar 360 degrees but was constantly changing depending on the direction of the sun. The photo on the left is taken down by the Virgin River which was just over the edge of our site.
The temperatures were quite warm as we travelled but also had been for some time. These are the trees blooming near Salt Lake City. Many of the trees were coming out in leaves as well which hopefully means an early spring.
Since we were blessed with such great weather we decided to take a shortcut through the upper edge of Yellowstone National Park. Of course there was still some snow in the trees but the roads were nice and dry.
A great stopover spot for the night is Idaho Falls, ID. The city has provided a free campground for a one night stay (perfect for us) along the edge of the Snake River. This is what we saw that evening - you can't beat that.
And with that, our winter trip has come to an end. It has been a great winter, and I hope that you have enjoyed our story of our travels as we surely did enjoy experiencing them. We travelled about 13,000 km (or just over 8,000 miles) with the motorhome - we saw lots, we did lots, and had a wonderful time. As I close off, I will say good-bye and thanks for visiting. Until our next trip, God Bless!
