From October 10 to today the 26th, we have stayed in four different types of campgrounds. We like to pick a certain road to go on and then just look for camp sites or campgrounds that go with the time frame that we would like to be setting up. We like to stay four days to a week at each place. We are still in the sightseeing stage, later when winter sets in we will find places in Arizona and stay the allotted fourteen days at each boon docking site.
October 10-15, Stayed at a free boondocking site with sandy soil, Prickly Pear Cactus and big Cottenwood trees for shade. There was only one other camper within sight. We were near Blanding, Utah on the South Cottonwood National Forest Service Road off of UT 95.
October 15-20 Stayed in Moab, Utah at a free BLM designated area on Willow Spring Road off of UT 191. Red sandy soil, big patches of Prickly Pear Cactus, Sagebrush and a few low Pinion Pines; no shade. Tons of people all over for this is the mecca of bicycle and ORV trails, but it was not noisey since there was so much room.
October 20-24 Stayed in Farmington, New Mexico at Mom and Pops RV Park. Needed supplies and items we wanted to get at big stores, so it was convenient to stay in the city. We found Pops on the internet and he had great reviews which were all true, really nice man, clean bathrooms, hot showers and he provided hand-outs of all the things to see around Farmington, with a map of all the big stores, good restaurants, libraries and attractions. Very strange to stay in a paved parking lot with a chain link fence and no grass but we were gone all day long and only came back to sleep.
October 24-27 Staying in Cuba, New Mexico at Clear Creek National Forest Campground on NM 126, $10 per night($5.with Senior Pass).
We are about 200 miles south of the high desert areas of Blanding and Moab but our elevation is 3000 feet higher and our campground is grass and Ponderosa Pines 100 feet tall.
In the next posting I will get back to catching up with our travels to Bryce National Park.
To end this post, I am adding some of my favorite shots of trees along the way.
