Driving along Interstate 70 heading east to Moab. My truck and trailer at a rest stop. Yesterday I went hiking with some friends. We hiked up this wash to a memorial to Lyzz. A lady who loved animals. Pretty interesting to build that in a remote area. A group of people lived in the area where the memorial is. A commune sort of. Plus a shot of campsite #26. What a view. Love this area. Click on image for a great enlarged view.
My JVC KW-R800BT radio install. Wow, what a difference installing a new radio makes. I got Ken to help me install the radio with me while camped at Red Canyon. He wanted to learn as well. So we both tackled the job. It was fun and a great learning experience as well. I watched a YouTube video on how to install on a Chevy Silverado. Lucky is was an easy install. I soldered the wires together matching color to color. Easy. Then used the shrink-wrap tubing for each solder. Smooth. Pulled off the dash cover. Pulled out the old radio. Then started with the USB cable that is attached to the rear of the new Radio and put the USB wire into the Glove Box. […]
Well my good friends Ken and Alice finally made it here to Red Canyon, UT. They spent a week hanging out and enjoying the area. We took in Bryce Canyon, Escalante, Boulder, Brian Head, Cedar Breaks, and many more places in and around the area. There is so much to see and do. It takes many trips or just stay for the summer a few times. Alice just bought a Sony NEX 3 with 18 to 55mm lens, and 55 to 200mm lens. Wow. It is just like mine, just a tad larger. Same lenses are used for all. Ken had a chance to test out a Coleman heater the “Coleman BlackCat heater”. It did not perform as well as expected. We ended up shopping […]
Yesterday was a good day for laundry. The tourists have started leaving and it was easy to drive about 6 miles up Hwy. 12 east to a private campground area behind a Chevron station to do my laundry. They have free wi-fi and a TV to watch while waiting. After that I continued on to Bryce Canyon Lodge in the park to have lunch. I heard from friends that their fish tacos were pretty good. Well, I love fish tacos and I ordered that with coffee. Their coffee is delicious. I asked the waitress where the coffee came from. She said it is Seattle’s Best brand. I love their coffee anyway and it lives up to its reputation. Tacos were good not great but good. […]
Coming back from shopping for supplies in Cedar City today I decided to drive through Brian Head and on to Panguitch Lake for the scenic route. On the way to Panguitch Lake I stopped and took a break on Birch Spring road loop. The image of my truck is at a nice pullover about 50 yards from the hwy. The Bear Paw resort is at best a really funky camp ground on a steep hill with a few cabins. But you are there for fishing and I guess the real fisherman can take it. The restaurant is inconsistent in quality of food served. Imagine trying to hire a cook to work in the middle of nowhere.
Tricia and I made our own pizza’s the other night. Mighty fine and tasty. So much cheaper and better quality than going to a funky pizza place unless it is an upscale pizza place like the Flying Monkey Restaurant in Springdale, UT. My personal pizza had sausage, onions, Anaheim pepper, tomato, spinach, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese on a pesto sauce base. Trish had spinach, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, mushrooms on an olive oil/garlic base. Click on image to see a great larger image. Shot with Sony NEX-5n with 18 to 55mm Sony lens.
