Big, Beautiful, Trees

Bill and I arrived, and settled into our temporary campsite at Lakeside RV Campground in Provo Utah. Big thank-you to our friends, Karen and Jim Parmenter, for turning us on to this adorable, little out-of-the-way gem. If this place doesn’t scream my want-to-be cowgirl style nothing ever will.




I just love, love, love, all the big beautiful trees in this campground.



Bill and I took a little walk to find the “raging river” along raging river drive…


We found the river, but to say it is “raging” would be a BIG stretch of the imagination… But the ducks that were swimming in the river were friendly, and came right over to the edge of the water, perhaps thinking we were going to feed them. Sorry, ducks, we didn’t bring any duck food with us today. 🙂


After our walk, Bill and I returned to our campsite on Gun Smoke Gulch… You can see the back-end of our rig in the picture below.


We had lunch, then decided to take the beautiful drive through Sundance, to check out the beautiful fall colors in the changing trees.


Such a beautiful way to just really relax, and enjoy this beautiful state of Utah.


Bill and I are celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary while we are here. Our anniversary is tomorrow, but we will be on the road again early tomorrow morning traveling to Arizona. So today, we are going to treat ourselves to a steak dinner at Outback Steak House here in Provo. Outback Steakhouse has blue cheese encrusted steaks for blue cheese lovers like me…. That steak is my all time favorite! YUMMERS, I can’t hardly wait!!!

So happy to be living our dream…,

Stay Tuned!

      Thank you Michelle. We are so happy with our full-time RV retirement travel lifestyle. It’s been a long time coming to finally have time for just Bill and I to be foot-loose and fancy-free… But we made it, and now we are making the most of every moment we get to travel together and see this beautiful country of ours… We will be in our Fountain Hills Arizona home-base work/camp site at McDowell Mountain Regional Park by tomorrow afternoon. That is where we will stay from September through April, and work three days a week in exchange for our full electric, water, and sewer hook-ups, and also free propane… Then we will be off and traveling again in May when we will head out to the Oregon coast for the summer of 2017. We would love to see you sometime too. I’m sure we can work something out while we are in Arizona for the winter months.. Who knew I would ever become a “snow-bird”… Ha!
