We all woke up very early this morning and were out of the RV park by 8:20. I think that is a record. There is not much to say about today as we just drove. The road climbs north of Las Vegas and is not very interesting until you get to the Arizona border. I-15 only runs through about 29 miles of Arizona, but that is right through the neatest cut in mountains. It is a very narrow canyon cut by the Virgin River. Further north the road climbs to well over 6,000 feet before dropping down to about 4,500 by the time we got to our stopping place for the night. We stopped in a little town just south of Provo, UT in an RV park with a pool. It is still 85 and the kids want to swim.
I have been driving 60 MPH and so far we are averaging 8.0 MPG. That may not sound like much to those of you driving cars, but it is more than I was able to get pulling Mom and Dad’s Alfa with my Dodge pickup. And, this truck goes up all the mountains at the same 60 MPH, regardless of how steep the road is. It sure is fun traveling with plenty of room for the kids to play at the table or climb upstairs to the bed for a nap.
We will probably be somewhere in Idaho tomorrow night.
