Salt Lake City KOA – Utah

We really enjoyed the park-like feel of this KOA. There were so many great trees here. Plus, they even had grass, a welcome change from gravel parking lots. The kiddos had fun at the playground & basketball court with a lowered hoop. It was even warm enough for the kiddos to swim. I was able … Continue reading Salt Lake City KOA – Utah

Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolate Factory Tour – Salt Lake City, Utah

Per the suggestion of our traveling friends, The Rookie Roadsters, we couldn't resist scheduling a chocolate factory tour at Mrs. Cavanaugh’s. Our first stop on our tour was where the candy makers dip chocolates by hand, just like they did when the store first opened back in 1964. Next, we watched a video about how … Continue reading Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolate Factory Tour – Salt Lake City, Utah

Great Salt Lake State Park – Utah

After wandering around Temple Square on Tuesday afternoon (9/17/19), we headed to Great Salt Lake State Park which is about a 25-minute drive from downtown Salt Lake City.  Two different tour busses arrived while we were there, so a few of my photos have some tourists in them. I'm sure we are in some of … Continue reading Great Salt Lake State Park – Utah

Dinosaur 🦕 National Monument – Jensen, Utah

We have two apprehensive paleontologists and one enthusiast dinosaur-lover in our posse of kiddos. Some of us were a little nervous about our trip to Dinosaur National Monument. This Stegosaurus statue is one of nine life-size dinosaur statues created by Louis Paul Jonas for the Sinclair Dinoland exhibit at the 1964-65 World Fair in New … Continue reading Dinosaur 🦕 National Monument – Jensen, Utah

Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah

Continuing our trek along Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America), we stayed just 2 nights in Moab, UT. Two nights was certainly not long enough to do it much justice. As my friend F.M. warned me, mid-July is not the best time of the year to visit Moab, UT. It's hot! The high temperature … Continue reading Arches National Park & Portal RV Resort – Moab, Utah
