41 degrees last night. That’s an eye opener when you haven’t been in temps lower than the 60s for awhile. Yesterday evening we got rain. There went all that cleaning the last two days. It’s a full timer on going job trying to keep every thing clean and shiny on the outside.
Cleaned the bugs off the windshield this A.M. It was pretty bad. I like to clean them off each day while traveling, especially off the lower front end.
Since we only have about 50 miles to Kanab today we were in no hurry. Yes, folks we can do only 50 miles.
I then hooked up the trailer/Razor to The Jeep. Then all that to the Beast. Yep, gonna try double towing today. Weight wise that doesn’t even put me at half my max towing rate which is 10K lbs. Love that Jake brake. Length wise – yes it has length!
We plan to stay two nights in Kanab. The day of arrival we want to go to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary which is nearby. Then the second day we want to drive to Zion National Park. Time will tell if we can “get ur done”.
I know it’s only 4 pictures but it was only 50 miles!
We pulled in to the Hitch-N-Post RV park after we disconnected upon entering town. the park is on the south side of town on Rt 89. It’s an old small park. We called ahead of time and they said no problem. We pulled in a side entrance and thought we were in the wrong park – too small. We drove around the block and came back in. “Bob” came running out saying he had a spot for us. And he did!
I (Carol) will have to back out of this park. It had 50 AMP, FHU for $31 with a $3.25 a day tax. 30 AMP was $2 cheaper.
We then had lunch at Pizza Hut which was a $5 buffet. It was within walking distance.
The tour was our second. If you come by here (Kanab) it’s worth a stop if you are an animal lover. That’s all I’m saying besides it was worth it.
Headed back to town we saw a dirt road that said Hog Canyon. We went for it. Two miles in the road went up a steep hill. No problem – I thought. It started to get sandy (red) and near the top it was really sandy and The Jeep wouldn’t pull it. I was afraid of getting stuck if I tried to make it to the top and it was within sight. I backed down a sandy hill for about 50-75 yards with a drop off to the left. It was adventure. The Jeep did pretty good coming down the hill and Carol did too!
We had a salad for diner along with some steamed shrimp in Old Bay.
Well, tomorrow we have three choices to visit which are Zion, North Rim, & Toroweap (AZ). What’s a Toroweap? Stay tuned….
