In our attempt to slow down travels, we spent a couple days in a campground in the tiny Town of Eden. It gave us some time to rest and wander around. But mostly it gave us a fantastic jumping off point for Antelope Island. Antelope Island was not the experience I thought it would be. […]Read more "Days 47-49 Eden and Antelope Island Utah"
After we headed inland, we wandered a little aimless, trying to figure out where to go for the next leg of the trip. As I said, we were too far ahead of schedule, and so needed to find some alternate things to do. Craters of the Moon National Monument showed up on our map and […]Read more "Day 44-46 Craters Of The Moon, Idaho"

I had wanted to see a Joshua tree since I had read Weetzie Bat as a […]Read more "Day 23-24-25 Joshua Tree National Park, California"
