After leaving Lake Powell, we headed south to Flagstaff, AZ. Looking forward to cooling off a bit. We arrived during monsoon season in Arizona and every afternoon, there were flash flood warnings. We got some pretty nasty storms but no flooding where we were, thank goodness.
While there, we took the opportunity to visit another National Park – The Grand Canyon. By now we were pretty grateful we bought a yearly pass to all the parks. But we also agreed we saw to many parks in a short time frame, although it was quite breath-taking and amazing, they were all just starting to blend together.
On our 3rd day in Flagstaff, we were offered seasonal positions in The Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area at the Lucerne Marina in northeastern Utah. After thinking it over, we decided why not and headed back north through Utah to almost the Wyoming border.
As we crossed over into Utah from Arizona, we drove through Monument Valley and got to see the Mexican Hat. Really, just more rocks, but really cool!
Below is the Mexican Hat. How that rock balances up there is beyond me.
We had only two days to get to the Flaming Gorge and we drove as much as we could for the day. Pulled off at a very nice wayside along the way to catch some zzz’s. Well that was the plan but the constant in and out of the semis made that a bit difficult.
Got up early and got back on the road. At about 5 pm, we pulled into our new home for the rest of the summer – Lucerne Marina. The campground here is really nice.
Lots of animals around here. The Antelope walk through the park, the marina and right in front of the window where I work. Hummingbirds are everywhere too.
Since we work here we get to take out boats free if they aren’t rented out. Hoping to do that one day here soon.
That’s about all that is new with us. There is much to do and see here and we look forward to getting out and doing some exploring.
