UnUrban camping in my front yard this evening....
Good vibes, good conversation and one awesome Nissan Patrol in my front yard!
My pleasure to offer a world traveler space on the lawn....
Tomorrow....Off-Roading in Jackson Hole! Pics to come....
Thanks for comments and camp site suggestions! Unfortunately we were already in Salt Lake when i saw your post, and for sure, the road betweeen Jackson and Alpine is a really scenic drive.Sorry we missed you in the Okanagan! My wife Ute and I live only 5 minutes from Mission Hill winery. The food is better at Quails Gate or Grey Monk anyway. The German chefs at Grey Monk do a fantastic dinner. It was great to see your pictures of Vancouver Island as we are moving back there ( just Victoria side of Jordan River ), in three weeks. A good motivator! We also are planning a drive to Patagonia sometime in the future. We will be following your trip here with great interest.
If you do go south via Jackson Wy, there is some wonderful camp spots along the river on the road south to Alpine Wy. We drove that route along the west side of Wyoming down towards Zion two years ago at this time. It is very beautiful. We are jealous!
Safe travels. If you want any info on the west side of Mexico, let me know. I have driven most of the way down the west coast and inland to Mexico city many times. We have many friends along that route if you need local contacts. I just today (after posting) received an email from my uncle who lives in Jalisco year round. I f you like I can forward it. It is the latest update from the US state dept in Mexico. It makes for an interesting read. (Take from it what you will, it is after all the governments view on things).
Thanks! We are now on our way south along the Rockies, so it looks as the 101, at least north of San Fransisco, will be left to explore the next time...If you come down the coast on 101 I am in N. Ca near Eureka and can give you some good roads and places to check out. Keep posting I enjoy reading it.
Hey!I do not know what your plans are, but if you are anywhere near Moab it is well worth seeing. Try "Fins-N-Things" It is a really fun trail, that you can easily do in your rig. Hell's Revenge is also a great trail if you are interested. The other one I would highly recommend is spend a day on the White Rim Trail. You can not go the entire thing as it was washed out (10 plus meters wide by more than that deep no way around) BUT you can always spend a day going down the road halfway, and then come back out. (must have a permit to camp on the trail)
Another really good one to see is Bryce Canyons, Amazing! Check it out on line and see if you want to go! Some great hiking trials in there as well.
Lastly I personally think it is a shame to visit the USA and miss the Grand Canyon! You can see the thing really easily in two hard days, and if you want to hike you can spend a week or two there. It is amazing to see! There is even a 4x4 trail to the bottom, but I have never managed to find out how to get on to it. I know it crosses a reservation, and you would have to pay them to get in, but it may be a private road in which they do not allow travelers. Worth looking into though.
If you end up in Provo Utah let me know, more than welcome to park in my yard for a night or two.
